I have a text with two leader lines question… how do I get the leader on the right side (see attached TEXT1) to be at the bottom line of the text? I need leader lines to look the way it looks in the attached TEXT2 file. Thank You

In AutoCAD I made the leaders separate for the mtext… you’re right that was a pain too. In this case I can squeeze in a single line of text and get what I am looking for, but is their a way I can edit the distance between the text and the start of the leader line (see attached) looks a little big? This is my first project with Revit… Thanks for your help.

Leader lines are a real pain in AutoCAD.  REVIT makes so many things so much easier we all jump to complain when we run into something we can't change.  But part of what makes REVIT so GREAT is that inflexibility.  We don't have to set everything and there a very few things we don't like.  The leader start point seems to be fixed somewhere in the program and is not adjustable.  Put that in a request for future REVIT's.

I have the same question.  How can I make my leader lines align to the last word of my text?

This ought to be really, really easy to do, and WWHub's answer sort of scares me.

Try this.  It is a blank leader line that I found a while back in one of the forum threads.  You can drop it in and specify the number of leaders and you do not have to attach text to it.

unfortunately that is the answer and yes it's a pain...another great example of Autodesk not hiring industry professionals to develop a package....I sincerely hope that they fix this and it is frowned upon here....we are not happy about the work around

I really want this to work...some good things some bad

notagain,

 

Just an FYI .... REVIT was initially designed by and for architects - not by AutoDESK.  Like all products, it will never be perfect or meet everyone's expectations.... And I hope it continues that way.  Part of AutoCAD's problems is that it has become so complicated because it wants to be whatever the user wants it to be.

Well said.  The fact that there are easy work arounds says a lot for the program which continues to improve with every release.  I personally would rather work in Revit than CAD anyday.  I do hope that Revit will improve the text editing capabilities in the near future as well, but I love the program.
