Is there a command that eliminates the hook on dims?

enter quick leader. pull leader & right click to "enter mtext". enter & right click. hook is the short horizontal line just before the text. setvar or command to eliminate this hook altogether?

I say to teiarch, try out your suggestions B4 you suggest them. Yours don't work.

OK joe, to eliminate the "hook", you also have to eliminate the mtext, so just check the none box under Leader Line & Arrow, then add your own text.

I tested mine first teiarch, and.... it works!!! :-)

I know...and now, I don't either, why? Because I only have one day left 'til retirement. Yes sir, Tues. Jan 2, 2007.

When you are occupying that chair they have reserved for you at the Track, have me paged sometime...I may be there.

Michael Davidson, or just Mike. It's a long shot that we'd be there at the same time, but life is full of coincidences. I'll be the good looking 60 yr old that looks 50....52.....55 tops!

Have a great 2007!
