Ghosted Labels so you can see where to put them

Ghosted Labels so you can see where to put them. Offsetting labels is a pain to try and place since the text does not ghost when trying to relocate it. Not uncommon to have to move the test 3-4 times to get it exactly where you want it.

Even better if you can move labels with standard Autocad move or stretch command

It would be great to be able to place the label with an option to either place the duct text label inside the duct as default, as well as a variable that would allow the user to place the duct size label manually. Offsetting the nodes is definitely tedious and time consuming. The ghost idea is nice but I would rather not have to move the text at all once I placed it.

Ghosting is a good idea. What about just enabling grips to labels/flow arrows. Grips would be so much easier than the current offset node.
