    Default convert leader to multileader???

    any way to convert old leader/text to the new multi leader??

    I do like the fact that the text and leader are now 'grouped' together to form one editable entity.

    I was trying to get something, but it doesnt work for all mleaders, which I guess means it doesnt really work, that little tail thing is really annoying to try to work with. then again, I really dont know what I am doing when it comes to modifying/creating entities using dxf codes. It would be so much easier if you could just say, make this dxf this, but some of them are un-editable, and others are controlled by other dxf codes.

    The QLEADER express tool will attach a leader to mtext in 2007 and previous versions. You can try that and see if they updated it to work with mleaders.

    in the mleader style options you can turn off the tail.

    yes, but then you cant have that horizontal line follow your text if you move it. If only Autodesk could just modify qleader so both points on a horizontal tail follow the text, instead of the one closest to the text. or just make the mleader easier to program.
