Ref Balloon Radius

Greetings,

Does anyone know how to define the radius of the default reference balloon symbol?

For a standard balloon, it's rather simple; just use the "max_balloon_radius" or "min_balloon_radius" . This works great and allows for a uniform size. I'd like my ref balloons to be the same size, but I just cannot figure out how to do it!

Re: Ref Balloon Radius

Logically, one would think that the reference ballooons would follow these settings as well.

If not, it may just warrant opeing up a support case!

Re: Ref Balloon Radius

Looks like qty split balloons have a similar problem. These are both governed by the symbol rather than in internal operation.

I knew there were reasons I didn't like following the regimen of the automated process

The Balloon Note (my go to use-case) does follow the min/max regime. But I do have to manage my external qty references which can now be related to the balloon. I might just have to investigate a better way to use a balloon symbol so I can make it a little easier.

Re: Ref Balloon Radius

When the "max_balloon_radius" value is set to 0, the Ref balloon are the same size as the regular balloons.

Re: Ref Balloon Radius

set value to 0 where?

I searched in the configuration editor and it did not pop up.

Re: Ref Balloon Radius

this option is under the drawing options.. file>prepare>drawing options.

but.. as stated before.. the reference balloon, and split qty balloon dont follow this setting.  if you use either of those options for your balloons.. they wont change diameter.
