So, for a while there we had a arrow text tool that had the options for a weld callout, then it turned into a goodie object, but now in version 18 it seems to be gone completely.

Can we please add a text option in the arrow text tool to give us a weld callout?

Have you tried adding that part to your loaded libraries?

I'd like it to be that simple. I actually don't have the original goodie add-on, and the goodies download page no longer seems to have this. I know we're not engineers, or welders, but as long as we have so many options already within the label tool, this seems simple enough to give us too.

Again, open a file that had the label tool or library part and then you can isolate it. It may no longer work in the current version of AC. If not, you could try posting it here to see if someone is able to fix it.

It would be helpful if you figured out which version of AC last had it and post that information here.

Again, I'd like it to be that simple. I don't work for my previous firm anymore that used such "antiquated" versions of AC. :wink:

However, it is my wish that the brilliant coders at Graphisoft take a few minutes to add this option to the label tool. After all, they took the time to add the Structure Label…

Thanks though for your help! If you happen to have the old goodie, I'd be more than happy to get it from you! If not, it remains my wish.

I was wondering if it wasn't part of MSA detailer.
