Inconsistent Callout Drawing Direction

The Arrow Callout starts drawing from the BACK of the Arrow, but the Bubble Callout (the rounded box with the Arrow/Point) starts drawing from the point of the arrow.  Driving me a little crazy.  It seems better to always start with where you want the point, then spread the text box open from there in the direction of your choice.

I think what you're asking for is to have the arrow callout start at the arrowhead, as it does for the bubble callout. Is that correct?

I'm not sure you'll get a reply from TechSmith, but if you do, I want to tag something else to callouts while they're looking at your post.

In SnagIt 12 I could have a shared bubble callout, where you could add additional triangular points going in different directions to indicate multiple inputs (people, dogs, cats, whatever) having the same thought.

SnagIt 13, I'm limited to a singular direction with the bubble callout and no ability to add additional "arrows".

PLEASE, TechSmith, bring back this feature. There are many uses for a multi-party callout.

Thanks rene!  I second that VERY useful multi-arrow capability.  Also,  re:  This Post,  it would probably be best to have the user be able to (in Settings for Snag-It) choose whether to have ALL arrows start, upon first click, from the point of the arrow or from the back of the arrow per the user's preference.
