Text Box Arrow connection to objects

Many times I use a Text Box with a macro and an Arrow to connect to the object the macro is supposed to reference.  But sometimes it will connect to a Cross Section Line or another object in the same location.  This is because of the "Draw Order" of the Objects.  Here's an example:

  • Stairway on Drawing Group 22
  • Camera on Drawing Group 7

Even with the Camera Layer "Locked", the Arrow will connect to the Camera line(s).

 

However, if you move the Camera to Drawing Group 23 or above the Arrow will connect to the Stairway.

 

Actually, I don't think CA should allow a Text Arrow to connect to a Camera at all - but since they do this is the best way to ensure it's connecting to the right object.
