Span direction symbol option - stop the auto placement

Span direction symbol option - stop the auto placement

Can we investigate removing or giving us the option at least for not putting the span direction symbol on new floors?
We only use it in certain situations so by default it is not in our template, but as soon as we load it when we need it, we start getting them on new floors where we dont want them.

Can't believe I posted this in 2016 haha. We've just now removed the need for span directions in our documentation. So while the initial idea remains, adding an option to 'not show this again' when there isn't one loaded would be great!

Agreed this would be great to get rid of.  I never  use the span direction symbol but somehow accidently loaded it in and now it shows up with every new floor placement.  Really annoying.  Purging out the span symbol family using the "Purge Unused" will stop the automatic placement of the annotation, but brings back the prompts to load a symbol family.

I agree as well! I wish we could turn it off. I made an invisible span direction symbol but you can still see it on the floor when you hover over it. I could turn off span direction symbols in all of our view templates but I will know that the symbols still exist and that is annoying. So its either I ignore that the symbols exist and I never have to click "No" on the "Do you want to load a span direction symbol?" pop-up again; Or I take the symbol out completely and continue to click No on the pop-up.
