Set Angle of Leader Line in LANDWorksCAD / RealCAD


Is it possible to set the angle of the leader line to anything other than 90 or 45 degrees as happens when you hold shift?


Yes you can set the incremental angle movements for all activity associated with the Shift Key using OPTIONS LINE from the pulldown menu. Set it to 15 for multiples of that angle, ie 0, 15, 30, 45, 60 etc

Additionally,if you type ‘A’ on the Keyboard to activate the Angle settings, then enter the value your desire such as 15, then press ‘P’ to lock the Padlock, subsequently all actions will be locked the multiples of 15 degrees without holding the Shift Key. This can be a good way of keeping the drawing neat. In fact if the use the Shift key whilst the angle values is Padlocked the Shift Key will temporarily Release the lock to give you freedom of angular movement.
