MLeader quick fix

Last semester I was trying to help some with a problem with their MultiLeaders and I had no idea how to fix it. The problem was that when they started the MLEADER command, the 1st pick point ended up being their text landing and the 2nd point was where the arrow pointed. In case you don’t know, this is backwards from the default option and is extremely frustrating. I couldn’t think of how to fix it so we restarted the computer, and since the school computers reset AutoCAD to its default settings, it was fixed.

This was still frustrating for me so I remebered something that plagues AutoCAD drafters: LOOK AT THE COMMAND LINE!!!!!!

There it was in the command line the whole time. There are options there that I had never heard of and figured out that if I enter H at the command line, the arrowHead will be placed first.

There are a number of options/settings that are very helpful. One of the options is to set the angle of the arrow & line so that they are uniform.



About AutoCAD Tips

This blog serves as a knowledge base for myself (and anyone else) so that I can reference tips & tricks that I have learned and also refer others to it as well. I hope that this blog helps you learn at least one tip to make your drafting/design experience better.
