Leader Arrows

Post by freher » Sun Feb 15, 2004 4:34 pm

When I switched to Mscad2004, my arrows from the Leaders do not show up anymore. While executing the command they show up on the screen but then they disapear once the command is comleted.
Does anyone know what setting will change that?

Florian Reher :?

Hi Florian,

Yes the straight leader is currently not working correctly in MSCAD2004. We should receive a fix to correct it this week. In the mean time you can still use the curvey leader.

Work around:

1) Start the curvey leader command.

2) Select the arrowhead direction.

3) When prompted for "Enter the points on the leader..." draw the first segment really short, half the length or the arrowhead for example. Or keep the first segment after the arrowhead straight instead of drawing an arc.

4) Then draw the leader extension lines as you normally would with the straight leader command.
