Rid me of this annoying warning when adding an arrow to a text object

I am detailing the plan of the foundation for a house with a walkout 0 level.  A walkout basement.  

 

As with any basement with all kinds of framed walls and room finish detail, one needs two SPVs:  one for the foundation plan, one for the floor plan.  I am in the foundation plan, the SPV established, all the required defaults set.

 

 

 

I select TEXT, type in the text, set my attribute for alignment RIGHT, and go ENTER.  There's my text.

I go ALT+A to get TEXT LINE WITH ARROW (why is it called that?) and click and draw my arrow where I want it coming off the text box, and POP! goes this stupid warning message.

I do not want that layer on.  I have a layer specifically established for foundation text, and it is on.  I can draw the arrow OK despite the message, and the arrow goes to the right layer,

BUT WHY THE SPEED BUMP?  I don't need this message, do I?

Why are you not using the pull leader from text tool?

Grab that medium gray colored diamond below the red grip and pull an arrow out.

Thanks, Ryan!  New trick for me.

 

But still, why the annoying behavior?  Why does Chief think a text arrow being drawn is on the TEXT layer?

It is designed to be on the same layer of what it is being attached to.  I find it helpful and prior to that would always change the layer with the layer painter tool so that It would show only when I wanted that text or note to be shown.  Otherwise your text might not be showing in a particular view but a random arrow would be.

Can you post your entire screen?
