    Callout tag issue (SIM/OPP)

    We created a separate Callout Tag type for SIM and OPP conditions. One problem, when we use the tag and reference another view for an OPP view it also changes the tag for the original view to the OPP type.

    Has anyone else experienced this before? Any ideas towards a solution?

    Thanks!

    Have you tried adding in text that says either sim or opp that is controlled by visibility parameters?

      Its done that since v9.1, when they screwed it up (back in 2007). It used to be instance controlled, it no longer is. Its (seriously) not worth fighting with. Every way that people come up with to *solve* it is still using some form of manual checking. If youre going to bother, just make a Generic Annotation that says SIM or OPP or OH and all the variants, and plop it next to the section or callout head.

      People may SAY thats terrible and more manual than *their way* but it really isnt.

          I just type the text I want near the bubble and don't use the built in. But its quite fun(NOT) to watch others on the team fill it out, then see it pop up everywhere, then I remove the text again, send the email, bu they keep doing it, thinking its instance based. OH why did they mess this up???

            That's the ticket for me. What's the point? Isn't a mirrored, opposite hand, typical detail ALSO similar? It's an argument at least!

              You would be technically correct. The best kind of correct.
