My problem is exactly the title.  I am looking for a way to create multiple leaders for a single keynote.  I am able to work around it by copying and moving the same keynote over itself, but it seems kind of "simple" for an incredible function like Keynote not to have multiple leaders.  I was able to use multiple leaders with the Sympol function.  Whats up?

As far as I know, you can do this.  You have to use a text leader with . text.

What I usually do is use multiple tags and tag all the locations I want and then just place all of the tags over top of each other to clean up the sheet.  This is an issue with all "tags" because by definition they are meant to tag only one item, so as to be parametric and eliminate user error.  If anyone remembers Revit 8.1, we didn't use to have the option of "free end" on tags, it was such a headache trying to tag rotated/curved families because the arrow heads would go wherever they wanted to.  It's all because the original concept behind Revit was to create a program that was totally parametric, but obviously there are pros and cons to approach.  The more parametric the model, the less chances are for you to screw something up, but that limits the ability of the user to customize drawings.  On the other hand the more Autodesk adds features to make the program more "user friendly", the greater human coordination is requried.  It's the same reason why just now in Revit 2009 we have dynamic txt in dimensions.  It's all about the battle between parametrics and useability. 

Ok...that was kind of a pointless and obvious rant on my part, but it's been awhile since I posted on here.

The problem in fundamental, the tag is tagging the object so adding multiple leaders would introduce user error. ie what is to prevent you from pointing to the wrong object. So I use your solution, I just tag each object then drag the tag ontop of each other.
