leader arrow sizes

Any way to change the default leader arrow sizes in dimension and notes, or is it fixed to each drawing template?

    now we could not change the sizes of the default leader arrow, but Onshape has added this requirement  into its improvement list, we will see it soon !

    Indeed, right now there is no way to modify it after a drawing is created.  The only way to control it at this time is to edit your templates in a DWG editor, then import and use those templates when you create the drawing.

    @jon_mcintyre where can we find instructions for editing such parameters in the template's

    @_Dave_ Just to be really clear on your follow up question, @jon_mcintyre was writing the current work-around is to get the settings the way you want in your .dwt template using your DWG editor.  And by DWG editor you can infer AutoCAD ($$$), DraftSight, ARES Commander (last two are from Graebert) - as some examples.  For you that means looking into your DWG editor's help documentation to set those items before you export as a .dwt file and import into Onshape.

    @pete_yodis  Thanks, for the reply. I'll look into my editors (draftsight) help documentation.
