Fix the independent label tool for text. Allow the leader line to align with the MIDDLE of the first line of text that spans over multiple lines. Currently it jumps to the top of the text box, which is above the text, or the middle of the text box, which can be confusing.

My current solution is to place <enter> characters at the beginning of the text block until the top line lines up with the leader tail. Rolling Eyes

. . . and allow repositioning of the text end node of the arrow leadr to be adjusted in relation to the text without having to reposition the entire text block in the process.

Essential, naturally. So essential that it's OK to wish for twice Wink . I think repeating an essential wish every 28 months Mad Exclamation is probably allowed. Seriously, very frustrating, and something that should have been caught when the tool was designed.

I agree.
A bit off topic, but have I miss the discussion about not being able to put text on the left side of a text label without first putting it on the right and mirroring it?

Essential indeed - such a poor oversight.

That's a pretty good workaround though!

Sounds like you have 'Fix Angle' checked. There was a bug in 9 where this kept checking itself on. Thankfully it's been fixed in 10!

Cheers,

Where's the "this is an embarrassingly necessary fix" option??

Every node should be a stretchy node, for WYSIWYG text formatting. Adjusting location of one node should not require user to adjust all other nodes to compensate just to maintain original positions

Leader line tail should stretch automatically if text column resized.

Large gaps between end character of of first row of text and leader line tail starting to right of text should automatically close up to a consistent offset from last character.

If arrow direction is flipped, text should stay put - not require reformatting
If text is moved or stretched, arrow head on leader should stay put.

Multi jointed & non horizontal tails to leader lines should be possible for those tricky situations

Leader lines should have an editing mode akin to detail marker placement mode where leader line intelligently links desired start point and end point, based on formatting rules - eg. tail of leader always 5mm long and starts 3mm from end of text, or all joints in leader line must be right angles or 45 degrees, or multiples of 30 degrees etc...
