I have turned off or unchecked "Extend leader to text" (Multileader Style > Modify > Content > Extend leader to text) in all my templates.
Yet, when I start a new drawing using those templates, that feature is turned on (checked) again.
I've tested this several times. Yes, I'm using the same templates I've been saving. I've even created a new template from scratch with none of our standards in it. The check for Extend leader to text keeps returning.
I've tried this in both AutoCAD and Civil 3d.
Am I missing something or is this a bug? Can anyone out there duplicate this?
I can't repeat, but I don't have an external profile reloading with my plain AutoCAD 2012 startup (where you are posting): do you (very normal with Verticals like CIVIL, even when run "as AutoCAD")?
Did you ask your peers in the Civil forum too? Worth a second post while you wait here.
Thanks for posting the dwg file. I used that as a template and sure enough, the extend leader to text did not appear.
I now know that it has to do with the fact that we "Always Left Justify" and have the "Right Attachment" as "Middle of Bottom Line". See image attached.
Its as if AutoCAD assumes we always want that leader line to extend to the text. We don't because the following code
(setq rvd_block (ssget "X" (list (cons 2 "revdate"))))
used in one of our Revision Date routines removes that leader line. Crazy.
