Subject: Creating multileaders



By default when you create a multileader, the multileader includes an arrow, line seg­ments, and  multiline text at the endpoint. However, you can choose a spline instead of line segments and a block (or nothing) instead of multiline text.

There are more options too. Use the Multileader prompts once you start the Multi­leader command. For more control over format, use multileader styles. For more details, see Working with multileader styles.
