Specify the properties of the selected callout.

To access this command...

Choose Format - Position and Size - Callout tab. This is only available for textbox callouts, not for custom shapes callouts.

These callouts are a legacy of the first versions of LibreOffice. You must customize a toolbar or menu to insert these callouts. The newer custom shape callouts offer more features, for example a Callouts toolbarIcon where you can select the shape.
