grid bubble in detail callout


when creating detail callout in plan, it is not showing grid bubbles at end of gridline in copped detail plan view.


As shown in attached reference images of overall floor plan and detail callout, only way to show grid bubbles in detail callout is to make extent of detail callout such that grid bubbles fall within callout. 


It is not always possible to extend detail callout to include grid bubble in live project, Is there anyway to show grid bubble in copped detail callout view.

Workaround is to use a "Grid Label", read here

Thanks, this has the solution i was looking for. 


Hope it was already part of Archicad software package. And not as separate addon. We have been trying out solution for this grid bubble in cropped views since more than past one year, but could not find any.


Also, if a part floor plan is cropped on sheet layout, and grid bubbles are getting cropped. Then also there is no practical solution to show grid bubbles in one view. the above works only for detail callouts.

thanks for your suggestion and sharing the link.
