Hi..ESRI strongly recommends to migrate from Military Overlay Editor and use the in-built functionality of ArcGIS Desktop.  However, I am loss at how to achieve the same level of functionality such as leadering (e.g. showing symbols/ groups of symbols other than actual location to improve map readability while a line is drawn from the symbol to the actual location) and stacking (e.g. where symbols belonging to certain order of battle/ present in geographic area could be stacked together)?  From functional point of view, these are important.  How these can be implemented both in Desktop as well as web based applications?   Regards
