"Something's Missing" Callout

Please add a "CALLOUT" that has a place for text on one side and a single line projecting out of it to the right/left/up/down (almost like an ice-pick). This would be useful for spreadsheet captures where you need to highlight the fact that something is missing, and where you can position the line in between the rows (etc.) where it should be found. Right now I have to use callout arrows with text. But they are a little cumbersome to get exactly in the right place and make it clear what you mean to say.

Do you mean like this?



Because you can do that with the current callout, by reducing the arrow base, like this:

Yes. But if you have to change the size of the arrow base every time then it's just as cumbersome as using the arrow.

True.  You got my vote.  I've often wondered whether there's a case for a different border type too.  Something like this?  What do you think?
