I'm trying to ceate a custom keynote using "Generic Annotation"  but the end of my leader will not attach to the symbol I create when I have uploaded into my project - therefore there is a gap between the symbol and the start of the leader.  And I cannot figure out how to adjust this in the family because I don't see any leaders???

mlmer - can you upload an image/file to make sure we understand your issue clearly? I am wondering if you need to relocate your symbol in your family using trial and error to get it right? but i may be misunderstanding!

without a pic of what your going for i am just guessing in the dark...  but the leader generally points to the origin of the family, so try movingyour annotation so that wherever you would like the leader to attach is located right over the "Defines Origins" Reference Planes.  If this doesnt work post an image and/or the family file so we can take a look!

I've come across this as well and it's a real pain. Moving the annotation symbol in the family to align with the origin is a solution only if your tag does not require multiple orientations on your sheet views. Another solution is to use the mid point grip of your leader and stretch that to align with the edge of your symbol thus eliminating the gap you mention. It's an extra step and all your leaders can only be straight with no elbows which isn't ideal but it will work for multiple orientations at least.
