Hi all,

Couild someone please help with this?

I went through Kathrin's walk-through tutorial about 6 times, carefully, step by step, anally making sure that I don't miss anything. I tried it on different days, with coffee, without coffee, etc.

http://revitclinic.typepad.com/my_weblog/2010/06/adjusting-the-scale-of-a-weld-symbol.html

It is incredible, but it doesn't work. I still get the notorious leader gap issue, not matter what I do.

It's been around for years, and I've returned to this issue with different Revit versions, but I had no time to really play with this. Now I am trying to get to the bottom of it - following her process step by step with miticulous accuracy, and I still can't get it to work.

Please advice if I am not seeing something in general Revit settings or other things?

Thank you!

NOTE: "Leaders in Revit want to attach to the outermost edge of a family. In order to get the leader to attach to the center of the All Around circle, we need to set the origin to move based on the side that the symbol and leader will be on."

Yes. Like I said, I followed the tutorial several times, each time in precise detail - very very carefully. I understand how the leader attaches to families - side-most point centered vertically, and it can be shifted via origin shift. I just don't understand why this specific family fails to do this, without a chance, no matter what I do.

I have been getting frustrated with the obnoxious size of the weld symbol too so I took a second look at the RevitClinic writeup. 

I was playing around with the formula for the origin positions to fix the leader issue and found that the dimensions that the author had were differnent then what eventually worked for me.

here is the ootb formula for the parameter 'origin position'

if(Symbol Left, 0'  0 21/32", 0'  0 15/32")

and then RevitClinic:

if(Symbol Left, 0'  0 1/2", 0'  0 3/8")

and this is what fixed the issue for me:

if(Symbol Left, 0'  0 9/16", 0'  0 7/16")

- by multiplying the ootb formula by 2/3 like everything else that was scaled down.

hope this works for you, sooo glad to finally have a better looking weld symbol!
