Changing Label Line Callout Leader Symbol Style

How do you change the Label Line Callout Leader Symbol Style to extend from the bottom or top? All the choices extend from either the left or right.

Mapping Center Answer:

The preview section of the Text Symbol properties dialog cannot be customized to show alternate connection points for the callouts.  The easiest way to test the possibilities for how your callouts will look is to create one in layout view (the Draw toolbar has a callout text tool--that you can get to from the "New Text" tool menu), and then drag the text in different directions.  For the Line Callouts, the few I tested did not support connections to the top or bottom of the text, but, the Simple Line Callouts did.
