Text location

N/A

Hi all.
Is there a way to place text close to a certain geometry object (a point for example),
and have it stay close to it even if you move/rotate the geometry?
The relationships do not seem to work with text as they do with geometry (to align
the text with a point for example).
Or should I use another tool to achieve this goal?
Thank you
Cedric.

Use a callout with leader turned off in place of a text box. First click is
to select the anchor point for the callout. 2nd click is to place the text.
The text will stay in the same relative position to the anchor point when
the geometry moves.

Thanks David.
That seems to be a great solution!
I'll try that further later on.
Thanks again.
