Arrow Head Types

Post by shamus » Fri Aug 05, 2005 8:24 am

Is there anyway of changing the default arrow head to something other than the solid arrowhead. I want to be able to use Microsurveys Curvey and Striaght Leader

You canedit the arrow heads (find them in the Mscad folder name MMARR.dwg or similar) The routine looks for the MMARR.dwg and so if you create your version of arrow and name it as same, thats what you will get. I think straight and curvey leaders uses the MMARR.dwg

Actually, the Straight and Curvey leader commands that we supply under the MsAnnotate menu are polylines and the arrowhead is hard set in the program code. Which means you can not change the appearance of it, only the size of the arrowhead.

The arrows that Richard mentioned are not used in the Leaders but are used in the other normal lableing routines.
