    Annotation Family leader

    When my annotation tag has multiple lines the leader centers in the block of text like so: leader.PNG
    The red line shows where I want the leader.
    Here is what the properties box shows in the family editor: parameters.PNG

    What am I doing wrong?

    Nothing. Leaders start at the midpoint of the family extents. Create a couple of invisible lines in your family equally spaced above and below the midpoint of the top line and you should be good to go. I have mine set to a formula that changes the distance between them based on the number of lines of text.

      Greg, thank you! The formula works like a charm.fixed.PNG

        Works really well
        Never though of doing that formula wise!

        Our default one has some interesting behavioural problems:
        If your Text gets deeper than the extent of the Invisible Lines in the family, and then the leader can't snap to a horizontal line
        If we adjust the Invisible lines to much, the Move/Stretch Point also moves down out of sight too
