The MLEADER command in AutoCAD is used to create leader objects. It includes an arrowhead, a leader line or curve, and a horizontal landing. It also consists of a block or multiline text object.
It creates a line, which connects it to the dimensioning text. We can insert the text either in single or multiple lines.
This command creates a leader line segment to the specified point and continues to extend to the last specified point.
