I have selected a balloon callout but the leading pointer won't materialize. How do I get it to show up?
Text symbols—ArcGIS Pro | Documentation
check ... Leader tolerance ... in the text callout section
Thanks. That's almost it. You have to select the text element in the layout, then select 'enable leader.' It is not automatic like it was in ArcMap. ArcGIS Pro has nice functionality, but it is not as user-friendly as ArcMap.
