You can also create invisible callouts, with no line or fill colour and no text, linked to each other and each with a note to create the illusion that the parent subtopic has multiple notes.

See the example below. In the first subtopic I've left the outlines of the callouts so you can see the callout locations but in the second I've made them completely blank:

You can probably reduce the spacing by decreasing the (Theme) font size of the Callouts.

But please note these Callout Notes may not appear in Exports or the PDF Viewer/Flash.

That's a good point. It definitely wouldn't work if you were exporting with the WordX add-in which doesn't recognise callouts at all but I'm not sure about about the built-in Word export facility. From memory (I'm not at my computer at the moment) this has the option to include callouts but I don't know about notes on callouts. I'll have a look in the morning.

I've just tested exporting callouts and callout topic notes to Word. I'm pleased to report that it all seems to work, including:

  1. Exporting visible callouts with topic notes;
  2. Exporting "stacked" visible callouts each with a topic note;
  3. Exporting "invisible" callouts with topic notes (in this case a bullet point with no text is placed in the callout box in the export with the topic note appearing on the line below); and
  4. Exporting a callout with a subtopic with topic note attached.
