Prompts you to create multiline text (mtext) annotation.
- Copy an Object
Prompts you to copy a multiline text, single-line text, tolerance, or block reference
object and connects the copy to the end of the leader line. The copy is associated
with the leader line, meaning that if the copied object moves, the end of the leader
line moves with it. The display of the hook line depends on the object copied.
Displays the Tolerance dialog box, which you can use to create a feature control frame
to attach to the leader.
- Block Reference
Prompts you to insert a block reference. The block reference is inserted at an offset
from the end of the leader line and is associated to the leader line, meaning that
if the block moves, the end of the leader line moves with it. No hook line is displayed.
Creates a leader with no annotation.
The options are available only when the multiline text annotation type is selected.
- Prompt for Width
Prompts you to specify the width of the multiline text annotation.

Leader Line and Arrow Tab (Leader Settings Dialog Box)

Number of Points
Sets the number of leader points that QLEADER prompts you to specify before prompting
for the leader annotation. For example, if you set the points to 3, QLEADER automatically
prompts you to specify the annotation after you specify two leader points. Set the
number to one more than the number of leader segments you want to create.
If you set the option to No Limit, QLEADER prompts for leader points until you press
