Detailing Symbols – Callouts

Building views encompass more than collections of saved views. The automated Building view creation process references Building views in Drawing models. These intermediate model types act as reference anchors for creating an additional type of dynamic Building view. Section, Elevation and Detail views are created with MicroStation's Detailing Symbol tools or Callouts.

Callout tools are accessed from the Create Views task. Or by menu selection: Project Management > View and Sheets > Place [type] Callout

The Create Views task in 2D mode.


Callouts by nature are 2D elements. Their functionality is active only in 2D models (drawings and sheets) as compared to clip volumes which are active only in 3D models.
