I would like to either find or create a shear wall symbol that accomplish's two things;

1. Allows the user to input shear wall length and have the corresponding shear wall line adjust to that length and

2. Maintains specified length but allows the user to move the shear wall triangle along the shear wall line to avoid clutter on plan sheets.

 If you look at downloads and type in shear walls this symbol, Shear_WallBraced_Wall_Symbol_2216, can be downloaded and is close to what I want but it does not satisfy the second condition. Does anyone know how or what parameters allow the user to move the triangle along the shear wall line?

Here is the shear wall callout I created.  It works pretty good.  The problem is it is NOT an annotation.  The nested part of the family is a generic annotation (the diamond symbol).  You my have to manually turn off (hide in view) this family in your other sheets.

Also, because it is not an annotation, make sure it is at a level above the floor, cabinets, ext.  Other objects will hide this family.  The best bet is to insert the shear wall callout right at your cut plane.  Let me know if you have any questions.
