You could always work the other way round and use the label tool with the pointer / arrow turned off. Favourites can be very useful for this sort of thing.

The problem I've encounterd is that when mirroring hotlinks with lables without leaders, the label moves from its original location, seemingly mirroring on an invisible point of the label far away. If you won't ever mirror the content then that is the way to go. However, using a small leader with an invisible pointer works properly AND provides an identifiabl handle to quickly move the label.

This is one of the occasions were White Pens come in handy.
