Detailing your drawings just got easier! The recent update to the Hole Callouts tool now allows you to add callouts to your Section Views, Detail Views, and Broken-out Sections. If you’ve ever tried to add a hole callout to one of these views, then you’ll understand why we are so excited about this update.
Previously, to add the hole callout information to section view you
- Use the model items command to get the hole callout in the parent view
- Add a note to the section view
- Link the note on the section view to the hole callout on the parent view.
- Return to parent view and right click and hide the hole callout
That is a tedious workaround to link dimensions to your different views. This update is simple and fast. Annotation> Hole Callout then you can select the edge of the hole or use Shift + click to easily grab the top or bottom edge of the hole, and you’re done!
