Site Callouts

 

 

 

We've consolidated all our callouts related to site and hardscape design into a single ribbon menu. The tools listed on this page are all available as flyouts of the Site Callouts button on the F/X Site ribbon, as well as options on the F/X Site menu.

Slope Callouts

Slope Callouts mark the direction and percentage of slopes in your drawing.

Photo Callouts

We originally developed our Photo Callout tool to label plants with actual plant photos sourced from Google Images. This feature also works for objects such as site amenities and lighting components.

 

For more information, see our Photo Callouts page.

Callouts / Discipline Graphics

Our Discipline Graphics include several other types of callouts, including arrows, scale bars, breaklines, and some of our other site callouts such as Northing/Easting Points, Slope Callouts, and Spot Elevations.

 

The Callouts flyout from either the F/X Site ribbon or menu opens our Discipline Graphics tool. Discipline Graphics include a number of standard callouts and graphics related to disciplines such as civil and electrical.

 

For more information, see our Discipline Graphics page.
