Q: When creating an enlarged plan (say, a toilet or a workroom) using the Callout command in the View tab, which type - floorplan or detail - should one select?
Each view type has some built in properties and settings. Based on these differences one can choose a particular type.
Here are some differences.
|Plan callout||Detail callout|
|Callout tag Visible in intersecting views||no||yes|
|Color schemes can be assigned||yes||no|
|Can have dependent views||yes||no|
|Project Browser categorized under||floor plans||details|
|Cut plane can be changed||yes||no|
Here are the properties of both the floor plan and the detail:
In this case, since we dont want to see a toilet plan callout tag in other views (like elevation / section) and we might want to change the view range for some reason, it is a good idea to select the Callout > Floor plan type.
