I am having a problem with arrowheads or more precisely, dots. I put in a multileader, changed the arrowhead to a dot. I used the larger dot, but resized it to 1/2 what ever the arrowhead is (in this case: a 3/16" leader head, is a 3/32" dot). I was working with the drawing, everything is fine, I went to lunch (didn't shut down the drawing), went back into the drawing, ALL dots are now 3/16" and look massive next to the little arrowheads. I save the drawing an average every 15 minutes. I didn't crash while at lunch, but, Every dot in the drawing (14 tabs) changed from 3/32" to 3/16" within a half hour. Any suggestions of something I changed, or something I need to changed? This is the third time I have had to corrrect all the dots in this drawing in the past two weeks.

Solved! by pendean. See the answer in context.
The block most likely did not change back, you/someone changed the scale of the viewport (or model) for you to something else. Annotative scaled Mleaders resize text and arrowheads with scale changes.
Yes, Annotative Mleaders. I have set mleader style to be arrowheads 3/16", in the drawing, I sometimes need a dot. I use the DOT and change size to 3/32" to look okay next to the arrowheads. Is this something I can correct easy or should I set up another mleader style for dots?
I wasn't sure that was possible, but at this time cannot argue against that. I solved my problem taking the easy way out. I create another mleader style with the word "DOT" in it, and changed those leaders with a dot to it. The style says that they are a dot and the proper size is 3/32". it seems to have done the trick.
