In AutoCAD it was simple to use different types of leader heads at the same time, i.e. arrow and open dot.  Is there a way to have two different leader types attached to the same text?  Any way this can be done?  Revit 2012

 

Thanks!!

Any way this objective can be achieved?  Anything more elaborate than "No" would be nice!

You don't say where you want this so we can best assume text.

Place a second piece of text with a character like a period? << Not a good idea

Create a special family << Better idea ... and what do you know.... there seems to be one in the downloads

Since the leader is part of the text you can't have more than one type.  Create a blank generic annotation save it as something like LEADER and load it into your project.  Now you can insert it as a symbol and place just a leader and place it next to your text. Something like this http://www.revitcity.com/downloads.php?action=view&object_id=2280

We use 2 different text types with the only difference being the type of leader. Place your first text note with say, an arrow leader where you want it. Then simply copy that text and move it in any direction a specific distance (1'-0" straight up). Then change the text type to the one with the different leader type (open dot). Move it back to it's original position (1'-0" straight down).
