A Callout is a shape that contains some text. But callouts are not just any shape — most of the time, they are connected to another figure or visual. Callouts also have an attached line, arrow, or another pointer style that identifies them with a certain figure or visual. So in simple terms, callouts are those extra shapes with text that add value to other visuals. On their own, you’ll hardly find callouts used anywhere.
