Does anyone know how to move the leader line on annotation callout boxes in Pro? This was soooo easy in ArcMap, ugh!
Are you using the Annotation edit tool?
Here's some help about adding/deleting the leader: https://pro.arcgis.com/en/pro-app/help/editing/add-or-remove-a-leader-line.htm
As for moving it:
Is there any way to do this with a graphic text (not map annotation nor database annotation) on a layout? If I select the out-of-the-box "callout" symbol from the Text subpanel on the Insert panel and then drag a box, I don't get a leader. How do you put text graphics with a callout on a map layout? I'm using Pro 2.5 (just released last week)
Hi A Zendel,
Tight-click the text element to open the context menu. There is a command "Add Leader" which will add the leader line.
Once the the leader has been added you should get the selection handle to re-position the leader line end point.
Hope this helps,
It does! Thanks. I had scoured the Properties dialog, but didn't see that one line that adds a leader.
But when you click an out-of-the-box text symbol that shows a leader and then add it to a layout, someone could argue that the leader should be present automatically. Perhaps this should be a suggested enhancement.
