Our office made our own detail/section bubbles that are a bit smaller than the standard ones that come loaded in Revit. Now when I place a new detail cut in our drawing the line connecting the tail to the bubble is not actually touching the bubble head. I made our new bubbles 1/16" smaller in diameter and now the line is 1/16" short of the bubble. It still acts like it is connected but does not display the correct way. How can I fix this?

I can't remember exactly but I believe this was the fix. When you are editing the detail buble you have to move it over the same increment you shrink it by. So if your circle got an 1/8" smaller (radius) then you need to move the whole bubble over an 1/8" to the right (I believe). The line is preset in the software to terminate at the same point. Since you can't move the line you have to reposition the bubble in the family editor. Hope this helps...

When you edit the family, be sure to go to the VG (visibility graphics), go to the annotations tab and make sure reference planes are turned on.  Most OTB Revit families of the annotation type have reference planes turned off.  The insertion point of the family will be where the reference planes that are set to "defines origin" intersect.  Typically in an annotation family there are only two reference planes so it is an easy task to find them.  Make sure your circle's quadrant is on the intersection of the reference planes.
