    Default Custom arrow / leader help

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    Hey guys, i have been trying to figure out how to use a custom arrow here at work so that we can start using leaders. But there are two things that I can't figure out...

    1. i'm not exactly sure what size to make the arrow and what type of block to make in order to make it scale up and down since i want it annotative.

    2. There is a gap between the arrow and the leader line and i can't figure out why.

    the leader that is drawn there is the one that i am having the problem with and the arrow that is just floating off in space is the size that I want the arrow to show up at in 1/4"=1'-0" scale.

    Can anyone help me? I am using ACAD 2008...

    Acad assumes that custom arrowheads are 1 unit long (in your case 1"), so the start of the leader line starts 1 unit from the base pont. In this case you'd want to move the base point 1 unit to the right on your arrow block.

    ahhh...that takes care of #2. You are awesome! and now for some reason the scaling is working fine now. So all my questions are answered. Thanks!
