Callout Specification Angle???

Recommended Posts

What does the "Angle" setting under Size/Orientation in the Callout Specification box do? As far as I can tell, it does nothing.

 Two things… 

 

1.   Try one of the other call out shapes (like a square maybe).   The ellipse, capsule, and rectangle callout shapes are a little unique in that they don’t rotate.

 

2.   Try to include a section line.

Well, I guess my real question must have been, "why can't we rotate callout AND text in the callout?"  The answer is apparently you can't.  New wish list item...

Block it and then rotate it.  Would be a valid suggestion though and one that has come up before.

How would one, "Block It"?

 

Select it while holding Control or Shift and then click "Make CAD Block"

Wow, cool!  I forgot about that trick.

I think I may need to re-watch that intro to Chief Architect!

      Anyone know how to change label text size? I am working on a large building and the layout scaling is 1/32". The labels are too small and cant be read. I cant find options for text size all the label panel, all it has that box that says use default, that I can check and uncheck. But don't know where to edit this default size or the individual label text size.

      I have tried looking up videos and maybe my search simply did not bring up the right video, but I want to place a rope light in my wall railing on stairs. It seems there is no option to angle the rope light, is this correct?

      I'm sure this is simple, but I can't figure it out.  I'm new to Chief Architect...
       
      How do I get the callout labels to be smaller, like 1/2 the size they are showing on the image I have attached?  I am referring to the appliance and cabinet callouts.  I can't figure out where those text sizes are controlled. 
       
      I appreciate all the help!

      Does anyone know how to create custom arrows for leaders.  I know Chief has many different arrows to select but I am still old school and like the thick arrows that I used to draw that are Architectural.  This has been one of my pet peeves is keeping my drawings looking Architecturally hand drawn i.e. text, line weights dims, and arrow are key.
