Auto Balloon and magnetic lines, improvement ideas

I have an idea for improvement, but it deserves a question first.


I just reviewed options in Auto Balloon tool. I almost always use the Layout Balloons to Square option, with [√] Insert magnetic line(s). If the layout of square magnetic lines around an isometric view need rearranged, it ends up criss-crossing the Auto Balloon leaders, either leaving it very confusing to read, or very tedious to rearrange the balloons clearly. Magnetic lines and Align > Space Evenly ___ tools do help, but I'd prefer a planned beginning to achieve desired results very quickly.


So, before I post an idea to allow Auto Balloon to add an option to attach to existing magnetic lines..

Is there a way to make Auto Balloon anchor to existing magnetic lines?


Alternatively, how do you clean up Auto Balloons to avoid overlaps and such, given current SWx capabilities? Maybe I'm missing something that would be very helpful.
