Stacked fractions, Auto dwg generation...

I am re-familliarizing myself with ASD and have a couple questions-


Can fractions be stacked on leader callouts? I'm assuming not because it is single line text when exploded.


how do you adjust the steel member length on part details? For example if I have a beam that is 20' long the auto dwg breaks it and cuts it down to very short.


Thanks for your help in advance

I don't have any luck with stacked fractions anywhere in ASD. It breaks the stack if you move one since most times the auto detail looks like crap.


Uncheck the box below to remove parts shortening
