    Is there a way to universally move the number of instances in the hole callouts?

    Rob Young

      I would like to move the number of instances in the hole callouts from in front of the text to the back and enclose it in parenthesis.  I know I can do this individually by moving it, but I would like the change to be universal.  Is this possible?  For example, instead of the default 2X 1/4-20 TAP THRU, I would like it to show as 1/4-20 TAP THRU (2X).

          Rob,

             From what I have read online it looks like you are stuck cutting and pasting to the end.  You used to be able to control the location on the number of instances by editing the format of gtol.sym file located in install dir/Solidworks/lang/user language/ but it looks like it is no longer an option (in SW12 anyways).  I even tried moving the count in the txtcalloutformat.txt file for every type of hole but that didn't work either.

           

          Perhaps one of the programmers can answer this more definitively.
