I'm using Illustrator CC. I'm creating a bar graph style graphic and need some of the bars to intersect with either the beginning, middle or end of the text label they reach to.
In this example bar 1 goes from start of January to end of February, bar 2 goes mid-January to start of February, bar 3 goes mid-January to mid-February, and bar 4 goes start of January to start of February.
(Crudely Drawn Example)
The problem I'm having is that there only seems to be an anchor point at the beginning of the text element so I can only align things accurately to the beginning. When I go add another anchor point by selecting the text element using the Add Anchor tool and clicking where I want it I get a message saying "Please use the add anchor tool on a segment of the path".
