    Multi-bend Leader

    Has anyone come up with a decent solution to having more than one elbow in a Leader?
    Or for that matter, any connected multi-segment line (no, I won't use the P-word!)

    If this is for wall finishes, use a Filter and make each finish its own Graphic representation in both color & pattern. Even if the end user can't read the Tag/symbol they can understand where the extent of finishes go.

    You can't use a filter to change the plan representation of Paint. LOL

    That's kinda the point. Obsolete methods shouldn't be enabled

    OK, then.
    Examples of a better method? In Plan?

    I have this discussion with SO many Interiors Groups. There are only a few choices:

    1. Elevate it all. Obviously most interiors groups wont do that, for a number of reasons (its what i would do, and have done on jobs, even before Revit, but thats irrelevant).

    2. Use a plan symbol. If doing number 2, you have a few choices:

    2a. Manually drawing lines and Leaders (like Dave Shows)

    2b. Drawing lines/leaders/symbols/some annotation through something like Dynamo or an App, and remembering to rerun it before printing.

    2c. Doing it with a non linear symbol/tag (not auto smart) sitting on each wall.

    One way ive seen it done is not with lines following the walls, but with a simple rectangular tag showing the finish, and then a "finish change" symbol somewhere on the wall, indicating the finish or base has changed. Then you look for the next tag.

    The drawing lines thing, aka multi leader segments, is asked for a lot. We have a Detail Component that helps with it, and are working on automating placing them. Because- even though i would elevate every wall and call it a day- not everyone will. And they are going to get to the lines whether we help them draw them or not.

    You can hate on "old school" methods all you want, but so far ZERO other answers that actually work have been provided in the thread. Zero.

    Here is an example from a Demo file. This uses filters to graphically show the locations of applied wall finishes. Typically a Tag would also be added.
