My Mleaders are displaying Incorrectly using annotative scales

In my office we use mleaders, which we like very much because they are very easy to use. 

We use the mleaders with blocks to make keynotes with leaders.

We also use annotative scales.

Sometimes a drawing gets messed with and the keynote blocks seem to get stuck at 1:1 scale. 


I can draw a new leader and it looks fine, but I cannot seem to update the existing leader and block to make them the correct scale unless I actually redraw the whole thing.  I would like to avoid remaking the leaders and keyed notes references....(just hate doing work twice)


Any suggestions?  I tried match properties and it doesn't work.

After noodling....

This is fixed by selecting all of the affected mleaders.  (I do this by selecting one then right clicking and selecting similar)

 I type MO to get to the properties box.

Then I

Manually set the arrowhead size back to standard.

Manually set the block scale to anything other than 1.

Let the drawing regen to show the changes.

Select all of the mleaders again and change the block scale back to 1.




all better.
