Leaders with Shapes Made Easy

You may know that you can create an MultiLeader style that incorporates a shape at the end of the leader like a square or circle…. This is useful for making keynotes and legends. The problem with this is that if you need multiple shapes, you need each shape to have its own leaders style. And after a while, it may be hard to keep track of what style is what.

The solution is found in the tool palette. Simply enter TP <enter> in the command line to open the Tool Palette and click on the “Leader” tab and hooray!! Simply drag the desired leader shape into the drawing area and double click on the text to enter your own text. Note: that  these leaders are not meant for large amounts of text. They are mainly used for limited text that will fit in the shape given.
