Looking at the attached image, does anyone know how to make the standard leader use vertical text?

Not what you exactly looking for but you could just create a quick leader horizontally and rotate the lot.There doesnt appear to be anything in the settings for horizontal text.

You have heard my tales of woe about not being able to use my LDD3 yet, so I am no expert on the newer AutoCAD by any means. BUT, what happens when you go to "DIMSTYLE" , to the style manager, select the "text" tab, go down to the "Text Placement" block, and set the vertical window to "above"?? That sounds too simple to work though.

Never mind. I just tried that and it didn't work. The only way I have found to do it so far is to set the leader and text at 0 degrees and then rotate them both 90 degrees. Not a good answer. Give Keith a minute and he will have you a lisp thingie.

well, since CAB beat me to it, I let it ride for a while, but how is thisfor a slight improvement...

put this in a button
Code: [Select]
^C^C_ucs;z;90;_qleader;^C^C_ucs;z;-90

Now the entire view does not rotate, only the UCS,  then it rights itself back to the same exact look as before the ucs change.

You could create a new dimension style and suppress dim line 2 and both extension lines.  Use linear to place the dimension (leader).
