Join Shaun Bryant for an in-depth discussion in this video Leaders, part of AutoCAD: Effective Annotating.
- [Voiceover] Another type of annotation that you have…in AutoCAD is the ability to place leader lines.…Now there are actually two types…of leader available in AutoCAD.…You have what is called the Quick Leader Command,…the QLEADER Command,…and you also have the Multileader Command.…Now Multileader seems to have kind of taken over…as the default leader command, but QLEADER is just as good.…Now QLEADER used to be the basic leader command…in much older versions of AutoCAD.…
So let's do that one first.…We're still in the 02_TypesOfAnnotation.dwg file.…And you can see that I've obviously saved…as we've gone along here.…You can see the rectangle with the circle…with the center lines from the previous video.…So, I'm going to type QLEADER, and that's…the quickest way to get to it. Just type it.…There is an icon for it, but if you just type QLEADER…for now, and press Enter, then what you'll get is the prompt…for the first leader point.…Now you'll notice there's the option there…in the command line for settings.…
I can click on it in the command line,…
