Customizing the leader style further,

 

I’m not sure if the leader style can be further customized to obtain the style shown in the attached screenshot.

 

Thank you

 

Best

You can create the one on the right with a dynamic block which has an array action coupled with a stretch action so you can place the lines where you need them to identify objects.  You may be better off asking this question in that forum. 
There are many people who could probably whip that type of block out in a few minutes.  See link provided below:

Hi steve216586,

 

Thank you for the answer.

 

If you find my questions really silly please just ignore them. It is not said in the terms and conditions that this forum is exclusively for professional, if so I would quit.

 

Also, note that what might be quite simple for you is not necessary to be the same for others (like me)! Just a bit of patience please!

 

Anyway, your feedback is always useful.

 

Best

 

Jamal

No that wold not be possible even with a Dynamic Block.

Arrays are static in DynBlks just as they are in the rest of the AutoCAD world. Caveat: The Hatch utility that has been introduced recently does allow for spacings to change readily but they are still all equal.

 

That being said what you seek is qute easy to achieve: (Though not terribly easy to implement.)

Open the Multileader Dialog

Create a new MLeader and use Standard as the Start point

Leader Format tab: Straight and Dot for the Arrowhead.

Leader Structure tab: Maximum leader points to 3.

Content tab: Whatever you need it to look like.

 

When you place the initial leader get it set to where you want. Highlite this and hover over the square grip near the text at the end of the landing. This will give you an option to add a leader*.

Add away.

 

*Tweaking will be neccessary.

Thank you very much Charles_Shade for the help. It works like a charm (attached). You made my life much easier!

 

 

Sorry steve216586, sounds that Mr. Charles_Shade has much more experience concerning this question. This is not against you. This is the life…! “The more we know the more we realize how little we know”

 

Very much appreciated

 

Best
