Creates multileader entities using the current multileader style.
Notes: A multileader entity consists of three components: (1) a leader line with an optional arrowhead, (2) a landing line, and (3) the content, such as text or a block. Multileaders support more than one leader line per content, as shown below.
Leaders can be added, removed, and content from multiple leaders can be aligned and combined. The look of the mleader is determined by options during this command and by the MLeaderStyle command.
Accessing the Command
command bar: mleader
menu bar: Dimension | Multileader
ribbon: Draw | Leaders | Leaders | Multileader
toolbar: Dimensions |
When the draw order option is set to "Content first," prompts you in the command bar:
Specify first corner of text or [leader arrowHead first/leader Landing first/Options] <Options>: (Specify the a corner point for the text or enter an option)
Specify the opposite corner: (Specify the other corner for the mtext bounding box)
Specify leader arrowhead location: (Pick the location of the arrowhead; the rest of the leader is drawn automatically)
The prompts appear in a different order when you choose the "leader Landing first" or "leader Arrowhead first" options.
- Landing gap
leader Arrowhead first
Begins drawing the multileader from the arrowhead end; prompts you:
leader Landing first
Begins drawing the multileader from the landing, the short horizontal line between the content and the rest of the leader; prompts you:
Begins drawing the multileader from the content end. The prompts shown here are for mtext:
Sets overrides to the current multileader style; prompts you:
Enter an option [Leader type/leader lAnding/Content type/Maxpoints/First angle/Second angle/eXit options] <eXit options> - enter an option:
MLeaders can be edited through grips.
- Select the MLeader in the drawing.
For a single segment leader entity, four grips display: Endpoint (1), Vertex (2), Landing (3) and Text (4).
- Drag the grips to perform the following actions:
- Move the arrowhead (1)
- Move the landing and the mleader content (2)
- Edit the landing length(3)
- Move text (4)
- To create a multileader
- Adding vertices to a leader line of a multileader
