Applied Parameters: None


This command is used to add a source or multiple sources for a single Callout in an active Draftsman document (*.PCBDwf). Callouts can be placed anywhere to provide further information about specific points of interest. 

For a high-level look at how the Altium Draftsman Drawing System provides an interactive approach to the creation of production documentation for your PCBs, see Draftsman. For detailed information about this object type, see Callout.


This command can be accessed from the PcbDrawing Editor by:

  • Right-clicking over a placed Callout in the workspace and selecting the Add Source command from the context menu. 
  • Using the Spacebar keyboard shortcut. 


After launching the command, an additional source will be added to the existing Callout.


  1. A Callout can be graphically modified after placement. Click on it to select it - an editing handle will appear at its end point. Click and drag this handle to move the end point as required.
