Allow comments to point to more than one object

Status: New

I really like the new arrow feature with block diagram comments.  But in many cases, I have a comment that applies to more than one BD object.  So, I would like the ability to link my comment to multiple objects instead of just one.

This would allow me to turn this:

into this:

Actually, that would not solve it because often the related items are spread around a block diagram and not necessarily chained together so neatly like in my example.
