• There is a Multi Leader Object in AC's Library since AC19-20 IIRC.
• If you want to use regular Labels (since the object does not link to pull properties) the "work around" is to place Multiple Labels on top of each other.

--That object is not a tool and does not provide the same function or appearance as the tool it is trying to mimic.
--Workarounds add steps to the drafting process, are magnets for mistakes, and, as originally stated for this wish, waste a lot of time.

The current Label tool needs to be updated to provide the options and features that users need.

With my current workflow it is not needed in 99% of my cases for that 1% placing one on top of the other does the trick, so these workarounds solve my need of a dedicated tool.
Guessing that programming a label to pull the data from 2 different elements, consolidate if they match and indicating "error" when they do not is not easy.
