Hole callout configuration

I'm using hole callouts for the first time and would like to configure the text different to the default.

For example, on a through-hole, it displays "THRU ALL" where as I'd like it to say "THRO' ". The dimension property manager shows the variable as but where is its definition stored?

I have looked at the file "calloutformat.txt", but this seems to just show the sequence of variables for a given hole type, rather than the definitions of the variables themselves.

I'm on SW2004. TIA John Harland

For this particular case, using the "up to next" option instead of through will result in a hole callout that reads "THRU" instead of "THRU ALL". I'm not aware of any other method to address this particular issues, except replacing the with what you actually want.

Thanks Dale. It seems hard to believe there isn't some file that can be customised to change this behaviour - does no-one know if it can be done?

Cheers, John

I have never heard of a place/file that stores variable definitions in the way that you are talking about.

This subject has been discussed often times. Do a search for Hole Callout (and maybe calloutformat and/or Hole Wizard) and take a look at all that comes up.
