Hidden Datum Targets in Drawing


New member
Hello All,

I have been trying to change the line type of the leader of the datum target to hidden mode but when I try to change the linetype using the properties option, the line type of the balloon also changes. Is there any way to change the line type of only the leader portion of the datum target balloon? Thanks in advance.

We haven't figured out how to just change the leader, so here's what we do: remove the leader from the target symbol and replace it with a line and a centerline (for the 'X'). The line can then be changed to hidden, and the 'X' can be changed to solid.
