    Question Edit Leader Line

    Is it possible to change the leader line? There is some desire in the office to get our tag looking like this (yes, I know, it's CAD. I know.):

    You could, however, make your own as a line-based detail item -- you'll need a way to manage scale -- I use an instance parameter but you could have multiple types as well

    Not as far as I know. You can choose between a few arrow heads and customise those to some extent, but that's it.
    So the black arrow is no problem the wiggly line before that is not possible I think.

    Somebody intentionally wants that goofy leader line? Is this legit?

    I know this is not what you're looking for, but just in case someone else stumbles across this post:
    The OOTB Object Styles have one lineweight setting for each Tag. That controls the weight of the Leader and any lines in the Tag.
    We wanted our Leaders to be a lighter lineweight than the graphics of the Tag, so we've got a sub-category in ALL of our Tags called Tag Linework
    The Leader ONLY uses the Lineweight to the top-line category, but by using a sub-category for everything else, we can have a thin Leader and a bold box

    Edit: and, yeah, that squiggle??? Can't blame that on CAD. That's someone's (probably ancient) "standard"

    Looks like an equipment tag and the leader is being used to impart some of the symbol related to its application, like supply, return etc.

    I used to work in a reprographics shop while I was in college. Not once can I recall having ever seeing any such thing. If that's a standard it was somebody going completely off the rails. I printed stuff going back to the early 1900s too.
