Callout Tool scaling issues

Recommended Posts

Does anyone use the call out tool?

We use it all the time, and when you change the scale up, say from 1/16 to 1/8 the text scales up, but the bounding box does not, and the text wraps and it looks like ass.

Does anyone else have this problem? Is there something I could do different to make it not happen?

Here's some examples

Initial scale 1" = 30'


Scaled to 1/8" 1'

I use the callout tool extensively for review notes but I usually copy and paste from sheet to sheet and it does scale proportionally as expected.

It may be best then to create a duplicate view, change its scale and copy/paste the callouts from the original.

The problem with that solution is the Callouts are a referenced layer. I have no control over where they are. I'm stuck with them.

Does anyone else have this issue with the call out tool?
