    Section head workaround not working in 2017?

    The old workaround of using text in the section head callout to make the line isn't working anymore. I had families going back to 2012 that worked fine but when they're used in 2017 the text is offset far to the left.

    Is this workaround still viable? More importantly, why does Autodesk refuse to give us a section head tool that works right?

    Does this have something to do with the text editor improvements from past versions to 2017?

    That's what I'm thinking. I'd like to know if there is a solution instead of a workaround to a workaround

    Confirming: The fix for this is going in the view heads, and COMPLETELY recreating the "text underlines," from native 2017 text. Meaning delete the ones that were present before, and create them from the new text tool. Seems to be working over here.

    So far no other solution, just the workaround. But at least its fixable.
