Which file controls Cosmetic Thread callouts?

I've been having trouble with annotating cosmetic threads on drawings for some time. We just upgraded from 2016 to 2017 SP1.0. I'm redrawing a simple sharft with two threads on opposing ends. I have a cosmetic threads made in the model. If I select The ANSI inch, no thread callout is available. If I select no standard, I can type in my own. It was my understanding that the ANSI standard had an automatic callout. Is this correct? On mine, if I select ANSI the callout box is greyed out.

 

I'm thinking either they changed the standard so the callout is no longer included or the file SW is referencing cannot be located. For some reason my file locations have been gradually getting boogered up. If there is a missing file or folder, could someone point me to it?  We do use a custom calloutformat.txt file for Hole Wizard stuff. If it's that file I'm in for a long day...
