I am trying to place my pipe invert labels at the actual point of the invert. When using the pipe label style composer, I have selected Anchor Point to be "Bottom Inner Diameter". Why is it that the label style still imports into the center of the pipe? No matter which anchor point I choose the label still inserts to the middle of the pipe. Is there a hidden setting that I am missing?

I don't think there's a way around it. When you anchor to inside bottom, the label moves to the invert, but the grip remains at centerline. It sucks because the leader, if used, will point to the centerline.
The x & y offset and probably an expression should get you where you want to be
Correct, I am trying to label them at the ends of the pipe. We used to use a multileader with a spline leader and invert elevation. But now when you use the style in dragged state the leader only stays in the center of the pipe.
If you are trying to label them at the pipe ends, there must be a connecting structure between them. (Perhaps a Null Structure, at the very least.) Why not label the structure? The labels will appear at the pipe ends automatically.
Visual time. Red leader is what I get. Brown Leader is what my company wants.
Attempting to use the offsets and expressions gets the text to move but not the dragged state leader connection, unless I am doing them wrong.
The work around currently being used is to hide the dragged state leader and then add our own after placing the text.
