Dragged State Label Style issue of line between text not flipping

I'm having trouble getting my label style to flip when in dragged state.  If I drag it off to the right, the text and line show up just fine, but if I drag to the left, the TC and FS head that way, but the line in between stays put.  Any help would be appreciated.  Please see picture attached.  Thanks so much!

 

 

I've added some screen shots showing my settings as well.  Thanks!

Edit the line component of the 'left' label style so that it goes to the left.  Change the the justification of the two text components to be left justified.

 

When the label is dragged the leader and leader tail will automatically change between left and right.  I highlighted this in the following image, from your original post.  The red lines indicate the leader and tail and the green lines highlight the line component from the label style.

Flip anchors (maybe?) would need style settings to be sure.

I have the text style settings attached to my initial post, but here is the line style setting within the composer...

Change your display in Dragged State to "Stacked text".

Thanks Bill, but when I switch to Stacked Text, it yields the result in the picture attached.  Is there a way to get the line to go all the way in between the text (extend out)?

Dragged labels using 'as composed' are not aware of the leader direction.  You will need a second style composed for dragging to the left.

How would I change the leader direction in a separate style?
