Leader arrowhead help please

Hello again,

I am having a problem with arrowheads or more precisely, dots. I put in a multileader, changed the arrowhead to a dot. I used the larger dot, but resized it to 1/2 what ever the arrowhead is (in this case: a 3/16" leader head, is a 3/32" dot). I was working with the drawing, everything is fine, I went to lunch (didn't shut down the drawing), went back into the drawing, ALL dots are now 3/16" and look massive next to the little arrowheads. I save the drawing an average every 15 minutes. I didn't crash while at lunch, but, Every dot in the drawing (14 tabs) changed from 3/32" to 3/16" within a half hour. Any suggestions of something I changed, or something I need to changed? This is the third time I have had to corrrect all the dots in this drawing in the past two weeks.

Annotative Mleaders by chance? did you change the scale?

Someone in your office playing a prank on you?

 

Nothing changes on it's own, unattended, and with no trace.

Yes, Annotative Mleaders. I have set mleader style to be arrowheads 3/16", in the drawing, I sometimes need a dot. I use the DOT and change size to 3/32" to look okay next to the arrowheads. Is this something I can correct easy or should I set up another mleader style for dots?

The block most likely did not change back, you/someone changed the scale of the viewport (or model) for you to something else. Annotative scaled Mleaders resize text and arrowheads with scale changes.

I wasn't sure that was possible, but at this time cannot argue against that. I solved my problem taking the easy way out. I create another mleader style with the word "DOT" in it, and changed those leaders with a dot to it. The style says that they are a dot and the proper size is 3/32". it seems to have done the trick.

Thank you for your assistance.
