Leader vertex does not connect to line when changing scales

I’ve had this problem with my proposed elevations for quite some time so I finally want to fix it while I’m a little slow. The problem I have is when I change scales, my elevation’s (in dragged state) leader vertex does not connect to my line. I’ve attached my lable styles so hopefully someone can give me a few pointers.

You need to use some different techniques. Right now it appears you are moving the leader vertex when the label is dragged to the left. When you change scales, the leader's vertex remains where you moved it to.

 Here a couple ways to address this:

Set the label style's dragged state to Stacked Text, where upon you lose the line in the label but at least the text will flip to the correct side. 

 

Create a child style, but have it initially go to the left. Then you will use both styles for the labeling, one for the right offsets and one for the left offsets. Attached are 2 images for 10 & 20 scale using this method:

Post up a drawing with the style so we can take a look at it.

 

Or, if you would rather, you can send it to me directly. I have a gmail account named c3dplus you can send it to if you want.

Thanks........I hope that's not sarcasm.

 

I made the jump from 2000 LDD to Civil 3D about 18 months ago and still trying to perfect my styles.

Thanks! I was hoping I could do it all in one style, but this will work fine.
