Create a Multiline Attribute for a Callout


You need to create a multiline attribute for a callout, such as a plant label or valve callout.


You may need a multi-line attribute because you're:

  • Creating a dynamic background mask for the callout
  • Correcting an issue where the callout is displaying random characters





1. If you're customizing a block-based label style, open the label's right (R-) source file from the folder LandFX/Blocks/Graphics/Callouts.


For multileader (MLeader) labels, simply open the imperial or metric source file.


In our example, we'll open the right (-R) version of the label LAFX-PLANT-LABEL-12.

4. Save the file.
