    Question View Reference Tag

    When creating a view reference tag I find that there is no template for it in the library so I use the generic annotation and then change the family type. For some reason within a project the origin (the blue 4 way arrow) of the family is way down below the tag. I can't just select the tag and move or drag it around with having to hover over the blue 4 way arrow. Any one have any thoughts?

    This is a glitch with this family in 2013. It is a pain in the butt.

    It gets better or worse according to the scale of the view. If I recall correctly the coarser the scale the worse the offset is.

    So it's something that has to be dealt with until the factory fixes it, I can deal with that. I thought maybe it was something I was doing in my family. Thanks guys!

    Still a problem in 2014, apparently. At 12" = 1'-0" (the scale at which we set our notes views) the drag handle appears approximately 18" below the tag. I've editing the family and moving the tag and label down 18" but the drag handle just moves with it.

    I've taken to using Move to deal with them, don't have to find the drag control... Be nice if they fixed it though.
