We use multileaders most of the time.
What I am not liking about them is that sometimes when noting i need to place the note in a position that requires the leader for that note to cross back under the note itself.
With multileaders, when this happens it switches the side the leader is attached to once you cross the halfway point. Sometimes I find myself in a situation where I need the leader attached to a certain side of the note but need the leader pointing to something on the other sideof that textbox. Is there a setting that will allow the leader to basically go wherever it wants without self adjusting the side of the text it is attached to?
Thanks to all,
Using ACA 2013

In the Mutileader Style (MLEADERSTYLE) dialog box, under the Leader Structure tab, if you increase the Maximum Leader Points from 2 to 3, you can then add an extra point when creating the Multileader. This will prevent the leader from flipping to the other side when you stretch the arrowhead beyond the midpoint of the text.
Thank you for the response but that doesn't work for me either.
I just tried it and as soon as the leader head gets to the halfway point of going back past the text box it still flips.
There has got to be a setting for this. Some sort of justification in the dim style or leader style or something. I swear i have looked at everything 10 times and changed settings but it's just not fixing this.
I do appreciate the intput though.
I guess you might be meaning that if I make a point before I cross back over the text box halfway point, and then add the addition line that it will then let me go past the halfway point of the text box. That is true, but if my leader line isn't set to a specific angle I then end up with three lines for my leader.
I've made a short video illustrating how this can be done and maintain the appearance of the leader. If you place the second and third points in line with each other, does this work for you?
Thank you very much!
That wasn't a huge deal but more one of those simple things that can drive a person mad on the occasions that it is needed. I am so happy to have that resolved.
One of the main issues I was having that I did not pay attention to was that I had my Landing first and not my Arrowhead. Changing that and adding the 3 lines made the difference.
