Leader Lines is an application to add labels with leader lines to a map. It is designed for Maptitude 5.0 (it will compile and run on earlier versions, but some functions may not work entirely as desired). Normally, if you want to add a label with a leader line, you would need to: 1) Draw a freehand line between the desired points on your map 2) Right-click on the line to set its attributes (color, line style, thickness, arrowhead) 3) Add freehand text at the end of the line 4) Right-click on the text to set its attributes (font style, color, frame behavior) 5) Adjust the final placement of the text once its attributes have been set This is no problem if you just have just a couple of labels to add. But if you have lots of labels to add or lots of maps to make, it can get tedious. Leader Lines allows you to set all of the desired behaviors in advance, and place the lines and labels with greater precision.
