- Next up, let's look at the Leader Tool.…I'll select the tool here,…and I'm asked to specify my arrowhead location.…In this case, what I want to point to,…I'll click and drag out to place my landing location.…I'll type my text and press Save.…The Leader and the text are connected,…so if I move the text the Leader will flip,…and adjust to accommodate it.…Let's take a look at some of the other options…for our Leaders.…I'm gonna type in O for options.…And I think I wanna change the Leader type.…
Right now I'm using a Straight type.…Let's take a look at what a Spline Leader will look like.…I'll exit my options,…click,…and we can see that I get a much more fluid line.…Let's go back into our Leader command.…And one of the other options I see down here…is Content First.…I'll type C.…And now I'm asked to specify…the content of the Leader.…I'll click Save,…and now I'll position the arrowhead here.…A few other tools that go along with our Leaders…are adding a Leader to an existing Leader.…
And also a very useful,…Aligning Our Leaders.…
