Cannot add hole callout to drawing

gw_estepgw_estep OS Professional Posts: 13 PRO
I have several drawings in a document and on one of them, I cannot get the "hole callout" feature to work.  When I click on the hole callout button then try to place mouse over any hole in my document, no circle is every highlighted, in fact no element is ever highlighted.  I have a different drawing of another part in same document that works like it should.  I've closed my browser, close the tab, tried Firefox instead of Chrome with no luck.  What am I doing wrong in this particular drawing?

    Hi @gw_estep - are these holes definitely Hole features (and not just cut extrudes)? The Hole Callout will only select Hole features.

    Definitely hole features.  I've since created additional drawings of other parts that have holes and the hole callout works fine in these drawings.

    Hi gw_estep,

    Is this an old drawing/a drawing of an old part? It is possible that the part was created before we had hole callout information and the featurescript has been held back on the upgrades since then. Could you post a link to your document here or share it with support?

    It is shared with support.  Here is a link to the drawing I'm having trouble with.  Thanks for taking a look at it.

    I pulled a ticket for it. In some cases we might have to update the part studio. I will take a deeper look and respond to the ticket.

    I solved the last one.

    If it is relevant. I find call out resembles same information on partial countersink holes in cases where 2 parts or more drilled. What would be your suggestions to annotate perfectly?
