I'm a fan of callouts to add annotations to a picture. I'm also a fan of connectors, since they allow me to reshuffle the elements of my pictures to fit the available space. What I miss is the possibility to attach the point of the 'arrow' of a callout to a glue point of another object, so I don't have to relocate the arrow head after shifting the text part of the callout. Perhaps connected to that, I frequently find myself trying to select a callout using a rectangle selection to find it did not get selected because the arrow was not fully included in the rectangle. I'm aware of the fact that this would probably confuse old-time users, so maybe it should be a new type of callout, or a new type of connector ('extends text box object' ???). The new type of callout can then be constructed from a normal textbox and a connector.

In my mind a useful feature.
