    Default Quick Leader Settings

    When in the Quick Leader command (and this only works for quick leader), you can Right-Click before selecting the first point to bring up a settings window. This controls your default leader settings. Things you can change:

    • End style (Arrowhead)
    • Straight or spline leader lines
    • Number of points (or bends) in the leader line
    • Angle constraints for your lines
    • Text justification for both Left and Right side text
    • What the annotation is (block, text, etc). The annotation is then associated with the leader (how it normally handles text).

    Does anyone know what variable controls the multi-line text attachment? I have a lisp routine that utulises the qleader command, but if this is set wrong, it messes up.

    try this, it is a program that will allow you to set up your qleader settings, and save them so they can be recalled using a simple lisp routine and always set current.

    This is the perfect type of thing to be set up in your template drawing - set it once, and forget it, as long as you create new drawings based off your template drawing with these settings.

    You can also access this menu by hitting S after you start your command, hitting enter after you start your command, or, if you are using dynamic input, the down arrow and settings.

    Good tip, Jason

    I agree with the power of template files.
    Too bad I had to inherit thousands of files that did not use a template.
