Microstation XM - Modify leader Lines

Microstation XM - Modify leader Lines

Microstation XM - Modify leader Lines

(OP)
With our change to XM, it seems that we can no longer modify existing or newly placed Leader Lines.
 Where text is attached to a Leader Line or not, it seems that the Leader Line and the Terminator are no longer attached, after they are placed.
 If I select "Graphic Group" Lock, the Terminator will move with the Leader Line, but if I attempt to Modify the location of the end of the Leader Line, the Terminator keeps the original direction, and does not rotate with the Leader Line.
 I have searched for some setting to select to no avail. If you know of the correct setting, please let me know.
 Please see attachment for clarity.
 Thanks,
 R. Hagan
  

RE: Microstation XM - Modify leader Lines

rhagan8063, I tried to recreate your problem and Place Note works for me.  I noticed that you are using a cell as a terminator.  What command are you using to create the leader.  Place Note or Place Active Line Terminator

A little more detail on how the leader was created would help.

Is your Association Lock toggled on?

HTH,

RE: Microstation XM - Modify leader Lines

Hi Bob,
 We use Place Note for our leaders. In fact, typing in the command "Place Active Line Terminator." did nothing.
 I have selected "Association" on the lock toggles and on the Place Note dialog box, it makes no difference on or off, even after saving settings between each change. I have selected different terminators from cells to text. No difference.

If I move the leader without "Graphic Group" toggle, the line moves without the termiator.

Former versions of Microstation had a selection in "WORKSPACE", called "TILE LIKE IGDS". By selecting this, the terminators and leader lines would act like one element.

I should probably listen to my colleagues and just delete and relocate the notes. But, where that would take 4 actions, modfying takes 2.

Thanks!!
Rob

RE: Microstation XM - Modify leader Lines

rhagan8063, don't listen to your colleagues,,, its broken so fix it.  I would have to see what you are doing or at least look at a couple files.  You can contact me off the board if you wish bob[at]envisioncad[dot]com

Otherwise I am sure you are on Bentley Select Support so you can contact them directly to see if they can take a look at the files for you.  http://selectservices.bentley.com/en-US/

Good luck,
Bob Mecham
