    Custom Tag outline

    Hello.
    I am trying to create a family that has a hexagon outline. The issues I ran into :

    1. Sometimes my text overlaps the outline.. I don't know how to make the symbol outline parametric/stretch to changes in text length

    So, I thought to create two option parameters for the family. Large and small hex...

    2. The parameter wont show up in my properties when I assign it as an instance. Only when I assign it as a type property, it shows up in the type properties. But, I would really like it to be an instance

    Am I making this harder than it needs to be? Is there a better approach?

    As far as I know that has to be a type parameter. It is annoying, but not terrible overall to just have multiple types.

    Thank you Mr. C! It is annoying but at least, I know I'm on the right track.
