Step Tool With Callout

Is it possible to use the step tool that also has a callout box attached to it for explanations? Or do you have to do the step tool and then add a callout box nearby? I attached a mock-up that is similar to what I'm looking for.

Hi there

Sadly, no way I've ever seen to make them both happen simultaneously. Likely what you are doing with your example is the best way.

But I'd love the idea to have something like this!

Cheers... Rick :)

Super timing!  Exactly what I'm looking for myself for a new product manual.

That'd be perfect.  I get a lot of steps close together though so what I'd like to add is the ability to grab the text box part and drag it away from the step indicator, which would remain anchored.  As you drag it,  a line is automagically drawn between the two. 



And I'd love to be able to style the text box to look like this too:





But wait a moment.  This idea has been raised as a question.  So it may not get on TS's radar.  Can TS reclassify it as an idea?  If not @dogear6 might need to repost it as an idea.

That would be even better - that way you wouldn't have to put a callout box with each step.
