    Surface Finish symbols

      Hello to all,
      Does anyone know how to, if at all possible, attach a surface finish symbol to a leader line that is dimension a feature?

          Not quite sure what you are asking, but you can add a leader line to a surface finish symbol. Initiate the surface finish symbol tool, then the second to bottom option should be "Leader". Select a leader, and then you can attach the leader arrow to an edge on your part.

          If you are asking if you can "snap" the surface finish tool to a pre-existing leader line, you cannot directly. The method for this is to create the surface finish symbol directly on the surface. Then after creating the symbol you can drag it, and it will create its own extension line tangent to the surface (like a dimension extension line).
