    Custom leader arrowhead

    Is there not a way to create or modify the arrowhead leader? In RMEP, I saw a blog that has this option. Where is it in RAC?

    I need an open dot arrowhead, but it needs to be larger than the 1/16 one that comes OOTB. I figured I'd just duplicate it and make a bigger one, but I can't find them.

    Never mind. I found it. It's under the additional settings drop down.

              The ability to create custom arrowheads, both in shape and lineweight has always been lacking, and has always surprised me that
              • I haven't heard more bitching about it,
              • more customisation hasn't been added by Autodesk

                no offense but to me custom arrowheads are the type of things that are needed in a 2D drafting program not a modeling program like Revit. Nobody that I do work for cares what my arrowheads look like or that there are even arrowheads in my drawings. If you want super duper customized arrows, use Acad

                  Oh boy. I always love it when the *If you want this, then go use AUTOCAD* comes out.

                  I like to think i push on Revit just as much as most people, if not more. And while im all about *the model,* i would still make plenty good use of customizable arrowheads. Just because one of us uses it (or one of us doesnt) doesnt mean the feature is worthless.

                  Am i THAT surprised or annoyed we dont have it? Not really. Certainly it doesnt bother me enough to give it much of a second thought, but i WOULDNT mind being able to make a filled dot arrowhead thats SMALLER than the 1/16" one. In a 1/16th inch plan, when i have room tags, i use the Filled Dot leader on them, but the dot is huge. In a few cases its overbearing in the room. Similar issue for Ceiling tags. Sure, i can use the standard 15 degree filled arrow, but i tend to differentiate things that are pointing to surfaces and things point to material layers by those arrowhead assignments on tags.

                  Surely we arent going to tell everyone who has to annotate a Plan or a Reflected Ceiling Plan to go use AutoCAD, are we? :lol: It would be nice if we had some more options, sure.

                    Like dzatto found, you can change the sizes of them under manage/additional settings/ arrowheads: just not the shape or form of them
