How do I constrain the proportions of leader lines?
I’m trying to draw some leaders from points to the labels and I typically draw leaders like in the below image (leaderlines.gif). In other programs that I’ve used (MapInfo and any graphics program), one can hold down shift to
-preserve 90 or 45 degree line angles
-after a graphic was drawn could be used to scale proportionally the graphic object using the handles that appear around a graphic object.
As far as I can tell, Edit Vertices doesn’t do those things.
Mapping Center Answer:
I'm afraid all I can do is confirm that there’s no way to do that task interactively. For the line callout, they only way to effectively do what you’re asking is to individually edit the “Gap” property of the callout—-a multi-dialog process that would compound the tedium. If you’re VBA inclined, and need to this task a bit more often than is pleasant; you could write a macro to adjust the gap distance for the selected text elements.
Sorry there’s not a good answer, I did let the development team know what you asked for.
