  1. Select an annotation to display its handles. As you move the pointer over the parts of the annotation, the pointer changes to show whether you are on a part of the annotation or a handle.

  2. Click a handle and drag the leader or annotation to its new location.

    The previous procedure describes the general steps you can use to move an annotation. The following descriptions explain how to move specific parts of an annotation.

To move a terminator

  1. When a terminator is connected to an element, drag the terminator handle to a new location along the element. If you drag the handle off the end of an open element, such as a line, an extension line automatically appears. The annotation and break line do not move.

  2. When a terminator is connected to an element, disconnect the terminator by holding the ALT key while you drag the terminator handle. The terminator type automatically changes to the active setting for a terminator in free space.

  3. To reconnect a terminator to an element, drag the terminator handle to an element. The terminator type automatically changes to the active setting for a terminator connected to an element.

To move a leader line

  1. Click a leader line and then drag the break line of a leader. The break line and annotation move and the leader line changes in length, but not orientation.

  2. If a leader was placed with the Leader command, you can move the leader away from the annotation and attach it to another annotation or element. Click the leader line and then drag the handle to the annotation or leader that you want to connect to.

To move a handle

Click a leader line and do one of the following:

  1. Drag the handle closest to the annotation to move the annotation.

  2. Drag the handle on a break line to move the leader line and annotation.

  3. Drag a vertex handle to a new location.
