    Default Connecting Dimension & Leader Styles

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    Is there a way to connect a dimension style to a mleader style so that when one is selected, the other is auto-selected?

    If so, can someone give a quick tutorial on how to accomplish this?

    Thank you in advance.

    None that I know of, short of a reactive LISP routine.

    A virtual crap-ton of styles is as good, in fact the primary argument, to move to annotative dimensions, text & leaders. You only need one style of each type. Another alternative is to put all your dims, leaders, & text in paperspace. Still, only one style of each type needed, with the occasional text height override for some notes. However, stick-in-the-mud office standards often put a stop to any move that large.

    I agree on annotative, unfortunately with the product output we have, it's not as practical to use.

    A lips would be helpful if there is one available somewhere. I don't know how to write lisp routines.

    This can't be handled based on the drawing template that is used?
