AFTER CHANGING THE SIZE OF THE TEXT IN A LEADER WITH ARROW SHOWS UP TOO FAR AWAY FROM THE TEXT.

HOW DO YOU CHANGE THE SIZE OF THE BOX TO ALLOW THE START POINT OF THE ARROW TO BE CLOSER TO THE TEXT?

 

ATTCHMNT SHOWS THE OUTLINE OF THE TEXT BOX PRIOR TO MOVING THE CURSOR.

Hi,

 

I don't see how you are getting that. I'm using RAC2009, and it works well with text as tags and material tags. See attached.

NOT SURE:

I SELECTED LEADER

DUPLICATED AND RENAMED IT TO A SMALLER TEXT SIZE

CHANGED THE ACTUAL TEXT SIZE

THE RESULT ON THE SCREEN WAS SMALLER TEXT BUT, THE TEXT BOX DIDN'T SCALE DOWN WITH THE TEXT AND IT LEAVES THE ARROW KIND OF TOO FAR AWAY FROM THE TEXT.

AM I THINKING RIGHT THAT THE TEXT BOX WOULD AUTOMATICALLY SCALE DOWN WITH THE TEXT.

I still can't figure out how it bahaves differently with you. The attached file I previously sent contained small & large text (the ones to the left of the picture) and tags (the ones to the right). They behave normally when I update them. You can also use the Match Prop (the dropper symbol) to copy styles.

Did you ever fix you problem with the text box size???
 
Because I have exactly the same thing, the leader is too far away from the text

This is a default in Revit that you cannot override.  A possible work-around is to create a new annotation family and insert a small line.  The attached image shows the result.
