Callout tool problems

Recommended Posts

The callout tool is giving us fits.

1. With the callout tool setup we entered in shoulder dim. of 1' so that all callouts would have a shoulder length of 12" at 1/4" inch scale. The idea is to have a short shoulder.

When we place a callout the shoulder is a scale 12' long at 1/4" scale and 144" (12') at 1:1 scale. No matter what scale this "default" we set is always far longer than what we wanted.

If we do 1/4" in the setup we get an invisible shoulder at 1/4" scale and a full 1/4" at 1:1 scale and proportionally for all other scales.

Net result we lose a lot of time re-inputting shoulder lengths for callouts.

Our current work around is to create a callout, set the shoulder length to the proportional length that we want for the view, then copy/duplicate it to create all other callouts in that view. Big nuisance.

We are using VW 2008 Design series for Mac. Yes, we are upgraded to the correct SP1 + SP2 build 83388. Happens on all machines, dual G5, MacBook pro intels 1.66 & 2.4Ghz, max. RAM in each machine.
