Balloon Selection of Faces

It might be just me but I have trouble getting a face selection with balloons. I only seem to only get edges and an arrow. However, I just opened a drawing done by someone else and they get a nice node to connect to the face.  How do we achieve this?

    For Notes, I seem to be able to do this if I:
    1. create a note (with a Leader or not)
    2. delete the leader (right-click, Remove Leaders)
    3. add a leader (right-click Add Leaders)
    4. Now I can put the leader anywhere I like...
    I haven't tried this with Balloons yet, but it might be worth a try!

    @brucebartlett we don’t currently support face selection but we are working on it.

    @NeilCooke  I see now this was an old drawing done before BOM linked Balloons.  I will look forward to face selection when it is added. Thanks again Bruce
