This tool will place balloons at the end of the gridlines in drawings

General Usage Instructions

When you need to show the gridlines of a building or structure and annotate them with balloons, this tool will do the job for you. 

Providing the user has projected the workplanes (that represent the gridlines) from 3D model to drawing views, the tool will add balloons (sketched symbols) at both ends of each gridline with their corresponding names (equal to workplanes names).

The tool provides some formatting options such as scale, color and font of the balloons.

Also, you can move all the balloons from one row or column at the same time.
