G'day all.  I'm new to Revit so please forgive my ignorance.  Am I to believe that with everything Revit can do it is missing a custom shaped callout bubble?  I have tried looking online for more information but the answer I keep seeing is that it's not possible.  I have even looked for a family or something I can download to no avail.  This has to be on future Revit releases!

Rectangular shapes only.  You can use a making region in a callout to "hide" portions of a model from a view, but the callout itself must be rectangular.

Too bad Autodesk can't take some of the technology from ADT to add this. Many cool capabilities of the old ADT would really enhance Revit.  Section depths with color/shading alterations between them would reall help in documentation!

Thanks.  I'll have to try making the regions.  Once I figure it out!

and unfortunately, Crop Regions are only rectangular as well... now where's that dust-laden Wish List?
