ST8 - Gap between balloon and leader line

There is approx. 1/4" gap between balloon and leader line, for all shapes. Is there a setting to remove gap?

The only thing I can think of is if the balloon leader has a break line and there is a suffix with just a space. So check out the prefix and suffix boxes or turn off the break line.

Other than that, no idea.

Are you using a line style that adds the gap? Make sure the line style is continous.

@12GAGE, That strikes me as very hard, if not impossible, to do. I'd be interested in seeing it done though.

Your right. Once looked at it the control is not there.

 

I have run into issues with a cap when editing the text enclosure shape (slot, circle, box, etc.....)

I use circles so I don't run into any issues.

Still having the same issue (was resolved, but came back on another drawing). I've checked changed lines, click on and off boxes in properties, but nothing changes.

Again, the only thing that seems likely to me is that there are space characters in the prefix or suffix fields.
