Place Active Line Terminator

Used to place the Active Line Terminator cell on a line, line string, arc, or complex chain, primarily to place arrowheads. The line terminator maintains association with the element on which it is placed. Thus, if you move or rotate the element, the line terminator moves or rotates along with the element.

You can access this tool from the following:

  • Ribbon: Drawing > Home > Placement > Cells split button
  • Ribbon: Drawing > Annotate > Cells > More split button
  • Toolbox: Cells

Tip: To place text (a note) in the DGN file with an arrow, it is easiest to use the Place Note tool in the Text toolbox.
