Leader to MleaderWin32 and 64, English
General Usage Instructions
LeaderToMleader will 'convert' old style Leaders and Qleaders and their text into modern Mleader objects.
Simply run the routine, pick the old Leader, then pick the old text associated with that Leader.
Leader to Mleader will delete the old Leader and text and place the new Mleader of your current Mleader style and size into the drawing where the old Leader and text was.
It will be on the same layer as the old Leader. Note, if original Leader contains multiple lines of text and it is not Mtext, you will need to first use AutoCAD's txt2mtxt routine (found in the Express tools) to convert the lines of text to one Mtext object.

Only works on existing multiline Mtext or single line text. If original Leader contains multiple lines of text and it is not Mtext, you will need to first use AutoCAD's txt2mtxt routine (found in the Express tools) to convert the lines of text to one Mtext object.
Also, your current Mleader style must be set to limit leader points to 2. See your MLEADER STYLE > Modify > Leader Structure > Maximum leader points = 2. If your current leader has multiple vertices, extra vertices can be added to the new Mleader by clicking on the new Mleader and hovering over the arrow grip, select Add Vertex.
