When the label is created I have the label as I want it, with a triangle at the PI point with the text next to it, but when I drag it the leader then points at the middle of the curve and not the PI position.
In "Layout" in label Style Composer I have stated that the anchor point is the Intersection Point, and of course it is, but when I drag it the leader does not point there.
I need to use the curve label here, as the table tag also populates a table with all the curve data.
See attached image of label prior to and post drag,

... Forgive me replying to my own old, old post - but two years later and two releases later this is still an issue, so deserves a bump, but the problem now is specifically with the start and end of a curve - the dragged leader always points at the middle of the curve and not the start or the end.
Also searching through other posts other users are also suffering because of this in other parts of Civil3D.

Brian, see my second post: the issue now is not with the PI, but the PC and PT.
The label inserts at the correct position, but once dragged the leader points not at the start or end of the curve but the middle.
As this is essential for our delivery, this necessitates our users to laboriously go to to every curve on the alignment and drag the label leader from pointing to the centre of the curve to either the start or the end.

See below - the anchor point on the Label Style Composer states "Start", but the leader is pointing to the middle of the curve.
Brian - thanks, that is a solution that works - makes you wonder though why have Alignement Labels AND Geometry labels doing the same function?
Because someone would say, "How come I can't add this information to my curve label?" In your case, you weren't labeling the PC and PT, you were labeling the curve and configuring the curve label to add PC information at the PC and PT information at the PT. When you take that into the dragged state, it points to the thing you were labeling - the curve.
