Why is it so difficult to re-attach existing notes to an edge in a drawing?

Does anyone else fight this constantly?

I don't know any screen shots I can show to help explain.

When you already have existing notes on a drawing, say you change something on the part/assembly that causes your notes to become "detached". Trying to click and drag the note leaders to attach to the correct edges again is a complete nightmare. Seems like there is a very very very tiny (maybe a couple pixels x a couple pixels) window that if I get my cursor in this tiny window while dragging the note leader it will show the line icon next to my cursor and will attach to the edge correctly. When this happens I usually struggle getting my cursor to rest in this tiny window and my note goes to one of the faces on either side of the edge I'm trying to attach it to. The other half of the time the edge doesn't even highlight when I'm trying to drag the leader to it. I usually end up getting annoyed, deleting my notes and reinserting them.

Just wondering if I'm missing something or if this is "system normal"?
