Is there anyway to make Solidwork show slot hole callouts from slot center?
I need the leader be attached to the center of the slot.
thanks for any kind of advice.
is it appropriate to use a note?

I can't understand why SW has so many problems with slots.
When I try to pattern a slot, the pattern is not center to center.
anyway thanks for the advice.
If there's no other suggestion, I think I have to go with notes.
I frequently use a Note to call out slot dimensions, but it does update if the slot size is edited. First I dimension the slot,...
...then start a Note. When I get to the point in the Note where I want the dimension I click on the dimension to add that value in the Note (the software will add a space in front of and behind the value).
Add the other dimension, then Ctrl+select the dimensions and right-click to Hide them.
Again, by using this method if the slot is edited in the model the Note will update to reflect the change.
Glen, Million thanks for putting time on this and explain step by step.
I wish SW programmers put more attention on slots. Life can be easier if they see the world from a designer point of view, not a programmer.
thanks again for your suggestion.
MR. Glenn can you accept me as an apprentice?
I work for peanuts.
I'm not a truck driver.
Because there is no job security.
I've always admired people with practical intelligence, I am serious.
There's so much I can learn from you.
Glenn's method will work but it's a number of extra steps. Turn in an improvement request. I will vote for it.
