leader to node problems

I need to attach leaders to other places besides the center of the node.

Say its a water valve and id like to have the leader attach to the edge of the water valve symbol not

to the center where the node is???

I am labeling all the existing items in a survey and need to do this to different sized objects.

Attached is a pdf to show sometimes its hard to read the info with the leader in the way.

It wont let me point to any other spot.

PointStyle properties, Summary tab, Markers branch, first item is "Leader stops at marker". Set this to Yes for the leader to stop at the edge of the marker's bounding box, a No setting allows it to go to the actual point location.

Looking again at the first image, it appears that one of the leaders is correctly stopping at the edge. Look at the end of the 1-1/2" water line, lower left coner. Is this a water meter? Is it using the WM point style? That's the one you showed the properties for. What do the point styles for the water valve and sewer manhole have for their properties?
