Join Shaun Bryant for an in-depth discussion in this video QLEADER command, part of AutoCAD: Effective Annotating.
- [Instructor] The slightly older leader command…available to you in AutoCAD is known as…Quick Leader or QLEADER.…And what it does is it utilizes qualities…from your current dimension style.…So let's look at that first.…If I go to the Annotate tab on the ribbon,…come in to the Dimensions panel here,…and just click on this little icon here, Dimension Style.…There's my LYNDA1 dimension style.…Now, you'll recognize that…from previous chapters in the course.…I'm just going to go and hit the Modify button…and I want to show you where that Leader arrow head…and everything comes from.…
And it's here, in the symbols and arrows.…There's the Leader closed field and the arrow size.…That's where it comes from for the QLEADER,…the Quick Leader command.…So, I'll just OK that and close…the dimension style manager.…Now, if I want to do a Quick Leader,…what I would do is make sure I'm on the right layer first.…So, Home tab, layers, and I'm on the leaders layer already.…That's great.…We've done that already…and we've set that up in the previous video.…
