    Detail Component

    So I have a detail component as shown in the image, but I would like the toggles (marked by boxes) to stay with the lines they control the lengths of rather than keeping at the center of the family as they are right now.

    What I was thinking was with a line based family the ends to adjust the length of the line based family always has the toggle at the end of the line rather than the center of the family, so I was thinking there might be a way with detail lines...anyone have some thoughts/recommendations?

    I assume you have used referenace planes , use reference lines instead - the push/pull arrows locate at the centre of a reference line, so draw the line carefully!

    I have tried it with both planes and lines, and neither seemed to work. Granted I may not have located the ref. lines in the right location to get the effect I was looking for. I will try it again and play with the location of the lines a little more.
