Hello fellow revit users, This question relates to adding text with a leader and arrow head when documenting drawings. I would like to know if it is possible to first of all edit or create my own arrow leader heads. Instead of the standard ones available I would like a 1.5mm black dot (However a 3mm dot is available in the standard selection). Instead of the black solid leader line, I would like to create a dotted freehand leader. Can anybody help me ? is this possible and how would I go about doing it ? I am using revit 2009, any help on this topic would be greatly appreciated.

Did you say text and not tags? Leaders are system family so you can't add a new type to it. But you can modify the ones that are already built-in, like their arrow style, fill, width angle and sizes. Those are the very basics we use. You can find them under Settings, Annotations, Arrowheads. You can't assign another linetype for the leader.

Is it possible  to draw leaders from the end of the text in Revit? It just looks a little bit cleaner...

 

Thanks in advance!

The only way this is possible is if the text is a single character, like a single number of letter.

Then you can just move the box right to the edge of the character and it looks like the leader is coming straight from it.

Well gosh... I guess I will have to live without it being neat sometimes... :-)  

I'll see if that way every comes in handle... it probably will. I guess I'm just too use to AutoCAD's ways..

Thanks anyway.

Ya AurtoCad is alot less complex than Revit, which makes it easier to change small things like these spacings..

In most cases use tags rather than text. As a workaround, create a 'Text Tag' (edit Material tag family and saveas and chanage the label to Comments instead of description) and use it for tagging items. It has some restrictions, like you cannot tag the same object with a different text similar to not tagging the same material with different type.
