Multileader is a drawing drafting object and, as a rule, is a straight line or a spline with an arrow at one end and multiline text object or block at the other. A text or block are connected with the leader line by a short horizontal line – landing.

The visual representation of a multileader, as well as its other parameters, can be edited when it is being created or on the Properties functional panel. For example, it is possible to show or hide a landing, leader lines, change the arrowhead appearance, create a frame around the text, change the point of block attachment, edit parameters of multiline text, incl. set background mask, etc.

It is convenient to adjust the multileader location on the screen with help of functional grips.
