    Default Point Label Style - Dragged State - Point to Node

    Hello,

    We're making plans using X marks for points, but I have noticed that the dragged state label leaders automatically point to the limits of the node (for instance, an X with a scale set to 2.50mm will make the end of the arrow point radially 2.5mm from the node).

    Is there a way of changing this setting to make it point to the node itself rather than the symbol scale? We're using hand drafted leaders in the meanwhile.

    It's done that way so the leader isn't obscured by whatever symbol is used for the point. Looks great to me!

    Yes, you can change this behavior. For any given point style, go to the 'Summary' tab, expand 'Marker,' and change the setting for 'Leader stops at marker' to 'No.'

    Hope this helps.
