Room Tag Issues

Hi

 

I'm having issues with positioning room tags.

 

When I try to position my prefered tag in some, mostly, small rooms I get an out of room error.

 

I assume this relates to an insertion point over which I have no apparent control which can be clearly seen, a green line, when trying to move the tag - see attached screen grab.

 

As I don't want to use a leader any suggestions or am I missing something obvious?

 

Regards

The Reference Planes are already there. Most likely, Annotation Categories are turned off under Visibility/Graphics Overrides.

It appears that the Elements in the Family are not located on the origin point (intersection of the reference planes). You can open the Family for editing to correct this, but all of your existing Tags will be changed as well.

Noted but the family editor doesn't give me the option for reference planes, only reference lines
