Please see the attached; is there a way to create a text background with a simple leader instead of a heavy, triangular leader as with the balloon callout? Thank you!

Mapping Center Answer:

Not with a Simple Leader.  You can edit the arrowhead with the Line Callout--where you can edit the callout line--changing it from a simple line symbol to a cartographic line symbol, where you can then edit the end symbol, where you can change the marker symbol (hint: use the ESRI Arrowhead font to make your character marker to see all the arrowheads you can be choosing from).
