Customize a multileader?

Recommended Posts

neuri

I have a power symbol for 13amps that I want to use as an arrow, place it on a layout, rotate it to align then have a line leading to the description of that outlet, and a prompt to indicate height that will be added in to the description.

 

Right now I can only do it with a static arrow and description, I then have to manually change the description and rotation of the power outlet.

 

It would simplify my work flow but Im not entirely sure this is possible... Any ideas?

When in doubt, check LeeMac out, as I always say.

 

Check if any of these might be helpful.

These are just the tip of the iceberg, spend a few minutes looking at all that Lee so generously offers to the global cad community.

There may well be others which will suit you more than these.

 

These are not ones which I personally use, but there are tons which I do, a couple of personal favorites are LAYER DIRECTOR and BATCH FIND & REPLACE TEXT.

 

Both of those are absolutely brilliant.

 

Thanks Lee! :beer:

Make a dynamic block might be the easiest.

 

Can you post a before and after example?

I played around with it more and found that Block Attributes work for amps, number of switches, height etc. so when I place my multileader, when it's done a prompt comes up instead so this is done.

 

I created a dynamic block for the amp sign and used it as an arrow.

 

From the picture, you can see I need to explode the Mleader, manually rotate the amp and join the lines. I was hoping to have the amp line up to whichever line its on and the lines to join (both insertion point and center extents dont work).

Do you want it to all be one entity or do you want the leader to actually be a leader? It is possible to do either.

I cant see images from third party hosting sites. Can you post directly to CADTutor?

I cant seem to load cadtutor's image uploading popup.

 

Anyway, I just want to be able to rotate the switch symbol then have it attached to the description. I already have the description set up with attributes so now i'm just figuring how to make it rotate and the lines to connect.
