Learn How to Align Multileaders like an Expert! (in AutoCAD)

In my opinion, mediocrity is something that every person should steer away from. Good looking drawings make the distinction between best and mediocre companies and drafters. I am totally aware that time is money as we all know, but creating beautiful drawings does not mean you have to spend too much time drawing. This can be achieved by knowing about some small and somehow “hidden” tricks, as the one that we are going to look at today – How to Align Multipleaders Automatically!

Align Multileaders in AutoCAD

First of all, make sure you are using MultiLeaders not a leader, and a Text object over it. MultiLeaders look better, their text can be automatically justified and you can use Annotation scales pretty easy with them.
This is why using Multipleaders is crucial for your drawings. Now, lets Learn how to Align Multileaders in just a few simple steps:

  1. Go to Annotation Tab, under Multileaders pannel click on “Align” or type in the command MLEADERALIGN

  2. Select Multileaders to be aligned and hit Enter.
  3. Type in O to trigger Options
    Now you will be presented with several options to choose from:

    1. Distribute – Spaces Mleaders evenly between two selected points.
    2. Use Current –  Uses the current spacing between Multileaders.
    3. Specify Spacing – Gives the opportunity to select a specific spacing between the selected Multileaders.
    4. Make Parallel – Places Mleasedrs so that each of the last line segments are parallel.
  4. After Aligning the Multileaders you just hit Enter.
