Does anyone know if the distance between the landing and the bottom line of text can be changed?
Reason being, if you have multiple lines of text and the bottom line is shorter than the other lines the space between the text and landing is too long, I want to be able the move the landing closer to the shorter line of text.
No, I cannot and do not want to rearrange my lines of text, the wording is specifically on certain lines.
You can modify the landing gap and landing distance, but I do not believe that is your question. I think the landing is connecting to the bottom of the mtext window, not necessarily the bottom line of "text".
Thanks for the reply, it seems that the landing gap (this is what I found to be the area I'm actually referring to) is controlled by the longest string of text in the multiple lines of text as part of the multileader. You can control the distance of the gap, but you cannot make the landing get closer to the shorter line of text.
Another point I forgot to mention is that this occurs when the leader is to the left of the text, and I want the text left justified (not right justified).
The "extra" gap does not occur when the text is right justified.
Attached is example of what I'm trying to accomplish, the callout on the right is how I want the leader to appear.
I really like the annotative and multileader feature, however the multileader needs to be more flexible to user control and not limited to just a few canned variables.
Yes, to be more precise, the landing gap attaches to the longest string of text. (your description is probably more accurate).
Whatever it attaches to, you can't change it when the mtext is left aligned and the multi-leader is pointing at something on the right side of the text.

Guess I'll need to make one of my wishlist items to be improvements to multileaders in AutoCAD.
Over the years since the board days Iv'e found myself to have a real love hate relationship with AutoCAD.
Autodesk will give us a great feature only to limit our ability to make it work the way we want/need, too many forced canned methods/styles.
Drafting has rapidly become a lost art due to all of the drafting software packages putting to much emphasis on precanned styles instead of giving us user interfaces with more options to allow the us to adjust settings.
In AutoCAD there is not enough style settings for us to customize, and in Civil 3D we are overwhelmed with styles.
