Specifying the ARROW HEAD (line terminator) for "place note" command

Specifying the ARROW HEAD (line terminator) for "place note" command

Specifying the ARROW HEAD (line terminator) for "place note" command

I am trying to use the "place note" command to place some labels.  I need to use a specific line terminator (arrow head), which is a point cell called AHT.  I tried the Key-In "LT=AHT" (line terminator = AHT).  This made AHT the line terminator when placing labels with the tools in the menu TOOLS>ANNOTATION>DRAFTING TOOLS>PLACE CALLOUT LEADER, etc.  However, the key-in command "LT=AHT" did not change the line terminator for the "place note" command.  (In this particular case, I don't want to use the commands under DRAFTING TOOLS such as PLACE CALLOUT LEADER, etc.  I want to use the "place note" key-in.)

I looked in the Help in MicroStation, and it talks about line terminators as if you can specify the different characteristics, but I couldn't find anything that said how to do it.  Please respond to my post if you know the answer.  THANK YOU.


RE: Specifying the ARROW HEAD (line terminator) for "place note" command

Under Element>Dimensions>TerminatorSymbols>Arrow>Cell place the name of the cell that you want to use for your terminators.  Of course, you must have that particular cell library attached beforehand.
