I am trying to add leader lines to the default ESRI Highway Symbols (Interstate, US Highway, Etc.). The highway shield is a Marker Text Background. How can I add a leader line to these? I have read the help and it just says to click on your text and pick add leader line. This does not work. I would like a Simple Line Callout but that over rides the Marker Text Background. Can the leader line just be a text blob not associated with an annotation label? I remember doing this in 9.0.
I am having the same problem in ArcMap 10. I have created a custom Marker Text Background and I would like to add a leader line to it. However, it appears to be an either/or. Is there a solution to this?
