How make Dragged State Point Leaders Annotative?

I would like to have my Cogo Point leaders scale up or down when the Annotative Scale changes.


Right now, if I drag a label (with Annotative scale at 1=50), and then change anno scale to 1=5, then the leader is "miles away". The label will scale up or down, but the leader stays where it is.


Anyway to make the leader annotative?

Unfortunately, C3D Labels are still missing a lot of the functionality we have with Annotative MText and MLeaders...  But that road goes both ways.  There's some features in C3D Labels (such as "flip plan-readable") that are missing from the Annotative stuff.


Each could actually use features that the other has.  In theory, we actually shouldn't need C3D Labels at all, and base Autocad should have some kind of "super-label" that combines the best features of both and works with any of the vertical products.  That would be simpler for the user, who would not need to learn multiple ways to label, along with the benefits/drawbacks of each, and a complex set of rules for deciding which one to use in any given situation...  But that would be "ideally"...  :smileyhappy:
