Leader Note snaps to wrong edge

Leader Note snaps to wrong edge

In a 2D drawing, when adding a leader note, after selecting the edge to attach the leader arrow to, the arrow may snap to another edge.  When this occurs, the "wrong" edge is on the opposite face of the component.  Example showing the leader attachment steps is attached.  My drawing primary view orientation is from the bottom.  When selecting an edge on the bottom face of the component, it appears that the opposing edge on the top face is chosen instead.  If I enter the note text and then attempt to re-position the leader arrow by stretching it, I can attach the arrow to all other edges on the component, except for the original edge which failed.

Works OK for me in my drawing.  Please attach your MODEL, not the drawing, so the Forum users can check it out.


If you do not know how to attach your Fusion 360 model follow these easy steps. Open the model in Fusion 360, select the File menu, then Export and save as a F3D or F3Z file to your hard drive. Then use the Attachments section, of a forum post, to attach it.

Leader note works well in my side. Can you pls check if it happens on specific dataset, or all files in your side?
Please share the dataset with us for investifation if it happens on specific dataset. or share the information of your OS and environment if it fails in all files. Thanks

Not easy to reproduce.  I have created a new instance of the 2D drawing from the same model using the same content and sequence of steps (as far as I remember) and the leader note feature works OK on the new drawing.   Seems like a glitch in the original drawing file and a waste of time to investigate further.
