Hello all,

I would like to have detail callout heads be able to be sized differently. However each detail seems to be tied to just one, meaning if I change the size of one, it changes the size of all the references to that detail. 

See attached for a better explanation. I want to shrink the callout head circled in red to fit better, but when I do it shrinks ALL references to that detail. as shown in the second attachment.

How to I make it so detail callout head sizes are independent of eachother?

I am assuming that you did this by going into the family and resizing the circle because that is how I did it many years ago.  What you may not have done is save it as a new family with a different name, so that when you loaded it into your project, it just overode the same one thus making them all the same.  Do a "save as" with a slightly different name and see if that will work for you.
