Tag Leader
« on: Jul 13, 2018, 06:29:16 PM »
Do any of you know setting that controls leader on/off?
I want to use MOVETEXT command but it automatically pulls the leader out and I do need it.

I tried in database-> annotation tab->number text->offset x,y set to 0 and it did not do anything

Thanks!

I have  tag numbers in my spools with no leader but when I want to use command movetext it automatically brings a leader out of tag number. So, I was wondering if there is a way to turn off the leader while using movetext command
Hope this make sense.

You would have to toggle that setting on and off.

Don't use the MOVETEXT Command. Highlight the tag and grab it by its blue node. Ill check more after work to think of more ways

Uncheck the box for "Lock leader in position when moving" in the database and you should be good to go.
