Join Shaun Bryant for an in-depth discussion in this video Setting up a leader layer, part of AutoCAD: Effective Annotating.
- We're now in another chapter of the Annotating Effectively…in AutoCAD Course.…This time we're going to look at Leaders and Multi-leaders.…So you'll be pleased to know that we've got…a slightly different drawing to look at…which is always good…and it's called O6_Leaders.dwg.…As usual you can download that from your account…and use the exercise files to follow along with the video…in due course.…Now we got a little rectangular object there…with three circles.…Nothing amazing.…Again, I'm using a nice simple drawing to demonstrate…the techniques that you would use in AutoCAD with your…Leaders and your Multileaders.…
Now one of the first things you would do is remember…that Leaders are another annotation object.…So you need to create a new layer,…a Leader's layer or something similar…to obviously make sure that your objects…go on the right layer.…So let's do that first.…So we go to the home tab on the ribbon into the layers panel…and I know I repeat this over and over again…but repetition aids retention.…So if you keep doing things…
