Spool Tag on Isometic Box Enclosure

Rectangular enclosure for spool tags does not adjust automatically, is there a setting for this that i can deal with.

Thanks

No resizable enclosure styles are exposed from annotaiton setup in project properties. To use such style, 'IsoConfig.xml' has to be edited manually. Find annotation defintion for 'Spool" and change AnnotationStyle="Rectangle"to AnnotationStyle="SRectangle". SRectangle is a style defined with resizable block.

 

 <PropertyChangeScheme Name="SpoolNumber" AnnotationStyle="SRectangle" Format="{0}" Enabled="true" Grouping="false" Tag="XX" Alignment="FlatHorizontal" LeaderStyle="AsNeeded" Filter="NotBoltWeldFlangeGasket" Field="SpoolNumber" Placement="Along" />

i have the exact same issue. 

 

where is the support for the new version of isometrics? getting rid of spoolgen was bad enough but there is so little help with the new format.

why in the world would the default not be set to "SRectangle"? that is just silly.
