Each of the commands draws an new grade elevation leader starting from the arrow point. The arrowhead and first leader line are one object when completed. (to eliminate loose arrowheads if the leader is ever erased) The difference between the commands is the type of arrowhead that each uses. The types of arrowheads are shown below:

ELVNEW - Std Arrowhead
ELVNEWA - Architectural Arrowhead
ELVNEWB - Butterfly Arrowhead
ELVNEWD - Dot Arrowhead
- Simple Arrowhead
- Tick Arrowhead

Each of the arrowheads is scaled using the drawing's scale factor so that they will appear the same size on the plotted sheet no matter what the drawing's scale.
