    Multi Category Tag Leader Alignment Issue

    Hi All,

    I have a multi-category tag which I am using in conjunction with general text notes to annotate an elevation (see image 1).

    The issue I'm having is that the general annotation notes all have their leader alignment set to the top (as can be seen with the "fixed roller shutter guides" note), whereas the Multi-Category tag leader alignment defaults to the centre of the body of the text...

    Is there a way to modify the MCT to get the leader to match the text?

    I've included an image (2) showing the parameters of the MCT label in the family editor.

    Regards,

    D

    Yes
    MC tag leaders always start centered vertically, so put an invisible vertical line in centred on the hori refplane.
    If it is long enough (i.e. the extent of your invisible line is greater than the extent of your textbox) this will trick Revit into placing the leader to the middle of that line.
