Regarding the multileader as text or mtext, I recommend that everyone adopt the multileader as the ultimate way to introduce annotations to DWGs. First, you can create a no-leader, no-frame multileader style. It might be annotative as well.
Then you can place it in the correct layer and drag and drop it into a predefined text tool palette. Unlike in the case of other features, such as mtext or dimensions, dragging to the tool palette environment will offer the feature, but in this case the specific annotation can be reused without limits in any DWG file forever. It’s a great automation and standardization feature.
Notes from Cadalyst tip reviewer R.K. McSwain: Tool palettes are often overlooked as a way to ensure that standards are maintained. Use them to preset certain object properties as needed.
