Defining custom hole callouts

Hi All,

Related to my request for Australian drafting standard AS1100, I'll pre-empt a lack of response and also post the workaround question.

I have found the file calloutformat.txt and have successfully edited it to reflect something closer to what I need. If I edit for example the ISO standard that works fine, but I don't want to mess that up, I want another standard.

I can create a new drafting standard based on ISO, under "Document Properites", and save it as AS1100. And I can copy, paste & edit the ISO hole callouts and rename that AS1100, but I can't see how to get the custom drafting standard AS1100 to draw it's hole callouts from the AS1100 section of the calloutformat.txt file.

I did find mention of the fact that the section in the calloutformat.txt file has to be upper case LETTERS, so I also tried with both the section of that file, and also the custom drafting standard saved as ASIIOO, but that also did not appear to work.

Any pointers?
