You can manually edit the text to move it above or below the line. But the example you showed from Visio does indeed look nice. Making this a lowest priority enhancement. 

Thanks for reporting.

how do you move the text of a named arrow?
Comment 4 Joel Madero 2012-07-09 22:22:41 UTC
Highlight text, right click, click on "Text...", add a number to "Spacing to borders". For instance to move it up 2 inches add a 2" bottom border and it'll push it up. An example that I did awhile back:

*** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of bug 45028 ***
Comment 8 Valerio Messina 2016-05-04 09:52:18 UTC
bug 45028 seems related to connectors and not lines and shapes like this one.
So please mark this as duplicate but be sure to add a note on that bug to solve the trouble with simple lines too ot this RFE will be lost.
