Is there a way to get the weld symbol to have the leader coming from the right side of the symbol?

I see where you can, in the properties box under other, unclick the symbol left box and it flips the symbol.  but when you put the leader on it still wants toa attach to the left side of the symbol.  (There is a symbol right box but it is ghosted out and I can not click it.)

Drag the grips on the leader. It will attach to whichever side it is closest to.

Thank you so much!

 

Off the subject - is there a way to take a drafting view on a sheet and move it up without moving the title of the section up?  I want my titles lining up and my existing beams in the different sections to line up.

No, the titles follow the views. Unfortunately you can't snap to anything in the view to line up objects from view to view. You can snap to crop regions, and that sometimes helps. Views will also align with grids and levels, but only if it's the same one in both views (Grid B will alighn to Grid B, but not to Grid D). So, you should be able to get your views lined up close enough, even if they aren't perfect (annoying, but that's what we have to work with at the moment). Once the views are lined up, view titles will try to align to other view titles on the sheets.

 

If you insist on having elements in views lined up perfectly, there is a somewhat tedious way to do it. In each view, move a corner of the the crop region to the intersection of where you want the views lined up (e.g., the intersection of a grid line and level). Then move the crop region back close to it's original position by some set amount. Repeat for each other section, making sure to move the crop region by the same amount. You can now use that corner as a move base point on the sheet as it is something you can snap to.

It's a little lame, but you can move the title line of the drafting view independently from the view itself. So you can line your elements / drafting views up as much as you like. Then when you're done, click and drag the title line to where you want it to end up. The key is to do the click and drag when the drafting view is NOT selected. If the view is selected at the time, it will move the view and title together.

Have you tried using the "Guide Grid" function.  It allows you to align your views as you wish.
