Editing the leaders

When editing the leaders, the same dialog box as when creating these leaders will be opened, but some additional icons that are blocked when creating leaders will be available (for example, the Add extension line, Select line and others).

The dialog box to edit the leaders (if Yes is chosen for the Program objects option of the Settings nanoCAD Int dialog box on the Main options tab of the Edit - By double-click section (the Tools menu – Advanced Settings)) can be opened:

·         by double-clicking on the leader;

·         by right button clicking with CTRL pressed on the leader.

The edit and fedit commands allow you to open the dialog box to edit the leaders, it does not matter whether Yes is set or not.

You can also open the dialog box to edit the leaders:

·         by placing the cursor over the leader and selecting Edit in the tooltip:

Note: To invoke the dialog this way you should choose Yes for the Show tooltips option (the nanoCAD – Options dialog box – the Main option tab – the Tooltips section):

·         by selecting the leader, pressing the right button and choosing the Edit command in the context menu.

The In-place edit command (ipedit) or left click on the leader with CTRL pressed allow you to edit the text of leader directly in the drawing, it does not matter what value is chosen for the Program objects option.

It is very easy to edit leaders with grips (for more information, see “Advanced grips”).

You can also detach, append and edit extension lines with the appropriate commands from the Draw menu – the Notes item or from the Utilities toolbar.
