I want to insert arrows into an idw. I usually use 'Leader Text' then leave the text blank.
The only problem with this method is it leaves a small horizontal or vertical line at the 'text' end of the arrow. Is there a way to get rid of this or is there an alternative way of inserting an arrow?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Also, I don't want to just create a sketch symbol as I need to be able to easily resize/reposition
Make a new balloon style, set the shape to "none - all entries" and make it display an empty property.
(easiest is to use a custom property that doesn't exist in your models)
Thanks for this tip on making a new balloon style. The only problem with this method is that the balloon needs to be attached to an object (or at least I believe it does). Is there a way to have a balloon (or leader without extension line) that is able to float freely on the drawing sheet?
Thanks! I actually discovered this by accident just before your post. I dragged the balloon off an object & moved it to the desired location. The arrow changed to a large dot, so I just right-clicked on the balloon & hit "Edit Arrowhead" to manually change it to a filled arrow.
I also right-clicked on the balloon & used the "Attach Text to Leader" option. The text aligns nicely with the balloon line regardless of where you move it.
