Boxed text to annotate symbols


I am a PowerPoint user and would like to have a PowerPoint feel on my Milestones project schedule.

Is there any way to make something like this appear near one of my symbols:



Yes, any symbol in Milestones can have boxed text like the illustration above.

Set up the symbol in the toolbox:

  3. Fill area around text.

  4. Draw border

  5. Choose the Fill Color, Target Color.
