This pane, shown below, provides the options for controlling how to display the detail entities lines.
Detailing lines are the leader, arrow and witness (extension) lines of a detail entity. The next figure explains terms found on this pane.
How the leader is to be drawn. The graphical representation of the list box shows how the leader style would appear on a linear dimension. For detail entities, the primary selections of interest are the first, second and fourth. This is because detail entities only have a first leader.
Allow Text extension In Small Spaces
Specifies if the detail line is to be drawn under the text of the detail entity, or to the side.
Note: When using this feature also try using the Format\Auto-center text feature for placement of text.
This is also known as the leader gap. The distance between the edge of the text and the start of the leader.
Ratio/Value check box
This check box allows you to specify either an absolute value (using the current part units) or a ratio value (leader gap over text height) in the Leader-to-text gap field. For example, if the current parts units in cm, and you select the Value check box and type .5, the leader gap becomes 0.5 cm. Or, if you select the Ratio check box and type .5, the leader gap becomes one-half of the text height.
This option controls which direction the arrows are to point. Auto: KeyCreator determines the arrow direction for best fit. In: Arrows are on the inside pointing out. This is how they are displayed in the Leader Style list box. Out: Arrows are on the outside pointing in.
Specifies the distance from the arrow to the end of the witness line to which it is pointing.

Height of the first arrowhead
Type of arrowhead displayed at the second selection point of the dimension. See First arrowhead, above.

Specifies the distance between the geometry being detailed and the start of the witness extension line
