AutoCAD Text Arrows/Leaders Tips, Tricks & Styles! Multi Leader Tutorial

Hey Everybody,

Brandon here and this week we are looking at how to work with and use MultiLeaders or MLeaders in AutoCAD.

Whether you’re new to AutoCAD or just looking for a refresher, this video will help get you up to speed when adding arrows or leaders to our text.

If you’re unfamiliar, an MLeader is a piece of MText (Multi Line Text ie text that spans multiple lines in AutoCAD) that has a Leader (Line with an Arrow or other block at the end of it) and Arrow (or other shape) pointing to something in a drawing. MLeaders are typically used to callout or bring attention to a specific item, object or area of a drawing allowing additional detail to be added in the multiline text portion while accurately pointing to the specific object.

In today’s video, we walk through how to use and add an MLeader to a drawing along with how to choose and modify the various settings that go along with them. Everything from changing up the properties of the leader like the landing distance to adjusting the style, sizes, and much more!

We also get to try out a few cool tricks to keep your drawings looking organized and clean!
