Exploded leaders when exported to AutoCAD

Does anyone know about a export issue with Revit, where the leaders in the Revit model are exploded when the model is exported to AutoCAD.  If so is there a setting or a procedure in Revit that fixes this other then redrawing the leaders in AutoCAD?


Thanks in advance for any help.

This is a current limitation in the Revit to AutoCAD export process; Revit 2011 leaders will be exported as lines in the resulting CAD file.  The development team is aware of this scenario.  Unfortunately there is no approach around the default behavior at this time.
