- How to Format / Extract Tie Lines from Labels
Does anyone know how to format or extract the tie lines (callout lines) from point labels in Manifold 8? I can't find any way to do it in the GUI, nor can I find a way to reference their geometry with SQL.
My underlying objective is to thicken the tie lines such that they are more visible on some figures. We use them as label leaders to clean up congested labels.
Traditionally, I've had a junior trace them in a PDF markup program but I'm under a tight deadline and am looking at having to do it myself this time.
In this case, it most certainly is. Hence my desire to do it another way. Regardless, thanks for confirming my fears. I'm going to sleep on this and see if I can come up with an alternative.
