    Default Customize Detail Boundary Callouts

    Is it possible to modify the standard "Detail Boundary" tool to insert on a non-standard layer? I have tried looking through the properties of the tool and cannot find a way. Also, is there a way to have it default to "Callout only" rather than open up the dialog box?
    Thanks,

    Thanks,
    You can change the Layer Key specified (under Basic > General) or, if your Layer Standard supports it, add Layer Key Overrides (also under Basic > General).

    Maybe our problem is that we incorrectly set up our "Layer Standard." We simply have a template with all of the used layers in it. I am guessing there is a way to customize the layer keys and overrides, but we simply do not use them. I guess I will investigate that a bit.
