    Custom Call Out Head with Variables

    So, round 2 of pain and punishment begins with modifying my call out heads to our company standard.

    I'm attaching a screen shot of the options that I want embedded into the call out head, much like my previous thread on custom section heads with variables. I've created the family with very similar visibility parameters as the section head, but when I bring the call out head into the project, I'm not given the same drop down list in the properties family selector when I create a call out to choose which family with which visibility I want. I find this strange because with the section heads, I can click the section head and all the families are available for choosing. Not so with the call out head.

    Basically, I need a section head to have a sheet reference label and a visibility parameter attached to it, and I need a straight string of text that says "THIS DWG." with a visibility parameter attached to it for a callout with a detail on the same dwg. Then, the similar ability as the custom section heads to choose the family I need based upon where the detail callout is located (left or right hand orientation, referencing sheet or same sheet).

    Here are the screen shots, and I'll attach the call out head families to see if anyone has any suggestions.

    Thanks for the help.
