Multi Leader Placement

Zdenko
Advocate

is there a way to add additional leaders to a piece of text? the search i did discusses "multi leader objects" but this does not seem to be a practical solution as in other software packages.

Labels can have only one leader.

So you need to use an object (will not be smart content like a label).

Add your own lines with arrows.

Or you can place multiple labels on top of each other.

If they are all displaying the same content, they will appear the same, but you just have to be aware you have multiple stacked labels when you edit anything.

this is a long standing wish that has gone unanswered. I usually just drag a copy of the label in place and move the leader of the second/third/etc labels to where they need to go
com+click will associate the additional labels to another element (if they need to be associative labels)

hopefully next upgrade 🙂 just a bit surprised given that it is imo industry standard...

Well, I don't know about next upgrade. I think I first threw this request out about 8-10 years ago... so maybe by AC38 we'll get there.
