    Default 8.1/E - multi-point (and spline-based) leader lines...

    I would really like to see multi-point (and spline-based) leader lines.

    More flexible leader lines would really make my life easier when adding notes. I spend too much time moving notes around in order to make the current leader lines work. Currently, there are times where I can't move the notes at all and then I have to create a spline and insert an arrow at the end... very laborious and un-Revit-like.

    See attachment.

    I use spline leaders exclusively and I think they make drawings more readable. It helps to distinguish actual geometry lines from annotation. This is a big one for me. The arc leader should be outlawed, I think it looks like **** and doesn't allow for anymore flexibility then a straight leader.

    We also use spline leaders almost exclusively. I hated their snake-y-ness at first, but the really do help to distinguish leaders from geometry.

    On a side note, I would really like to see curved keynote leader lines.
