Please help, we would like to use material tags in tagging all of our detail components but we cannot find away to have the leader always be top right justified with the first line of text. The leader always ends up being center justified if the type comment is lengthy and has to word wrap and become two lines. We have edited the family and made sure the Vertical Align = Top and Horizontal Align = Rigth.  I have included a picture showing the same tag with two different detail components; one has a short line of type comments while the other has a lon line of type comments.

All tags seem to come from the middle of the text no matter what the justification of the text is.  We have not been able to solve this problem either.

I found an answer on a different websites forum..."Add a detail line in the tag, that is of the type <invisible lines> and make it go up, and down, farther than your Label. Then move the midpoint of the line to where you want the leader. That is now the *center* of the tag. "  -TwiceRoadsFool  www.revitforum.org

 

attaching a picture to show how the fix works

Yea - well - how's that solution working for you? 

 

Looks good on a two line tag - but then it looked good before.  Make it a 3 or 4 line tag and check both ends.

The theory is still the same, you just make your invisible line taller, here is an example of an 2" invisible line with 8 lines of text.  I am happy with this solution because now we can actually use material tags in our project, before the project managers did not like how the leader came out of the center of the text, so we had to use normal text lines for everything.
