Copy as you stretch, move, rotate, or scale & create multiple leader arrows

When you edit with grips, you can use the Copy option to copy as you edit. For example, if you are scaling a circle, use the Copy option to make concentric circles.

If you want to create a leader that points to more than one object, first create the leader pointing to one object. Then select the leader arrow. Click the grip at the arrow end to make it “hot.” Choose the Copy option at the Specify stretch point or [Base point/Copy/Undo/eXit]: prompt. Specify as many new end points as you want. Each new leader will be attached to the original Mtext at the end of the first leader.

Use the eXit option to end the command.

Note: In AutoCAD 2008, you can create leaders with multiple arrows using the MLEADER command.
