    Default Attach arrow to a line

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    I want to draw a line and add an arrow head to the end of the line. I can do this easily but when I pick the grip point on the opposite end to the arrow and move this point in any direction the arrow doesn’t rotate with the line. Is there a way that I can add some code to my lisp routine to make the arrow part of the line?

    I have moved your thread to the AutoLISP, Visual LISP & DCL Forum since you are wanting help with a LISP.

    Welcome to the CADTutor forum.

    As Aftertouch indicates, a leader or multi-leader will give you a line with an arrow that stay aligned with each other. If you don't want text, you can select Options instead of typing text and use the None option.

    I use QLEADER when I just want a line with an arrow, but the OP mentions this is part of a LISP routine.

    THIS may help.
