Custom Wall Assembly Tag

Hi all, 


Im working on creating all of our common AutoCAD annotation symbols in revit. 


For section details we use a wall asembly tag that wraps the thickness of the wall, and its set up so we pull the arrows to match the width of the assembly. (see attatchment)


Im struggling to find a way to make this work in Revit as well, either by automatically adjusting to the width of the assembly we are tagging, or even by just pulling the arrows like we did in autocad. 


Any suggestions or answers would be greatly appreciated

Thank you for posting!


Unfortunately it is not possible to create an arrow tag that adjusts to the wall thickness.
