Upon clicking into the text, you can use the RMB->Text
This will present a pop-up with positioning options
Use radio button picks to either orient to a relative sector,
N, NE, E, SE, S, SW, W, NW
Or specifiy specific numeric +/- indentations for left, right, top, bottom.
However, this is rather tedious and hit-miss, as the desired affect does not
always result after hitting OK, and you may have to do several RMB->Text cycles
before the text moves to the desired location. (costing a lot of time)
It would be best if such text were given a mini handle that becomes visible
when hovered over....similar to what is provided for glue points.
That would allow precise, real-time placement, without the need to guess, retry.

thanks for filing Steve. > New
As stated in 43071 the exact connector position should rather be done by workarounds (line breaks, white spaces, or using an extra text frame). I don't see the advantage of cardinal directions, and with a handle people would expect to be able to freely place the caption.
IMHO WONTFIX (and DUPLICATE, somehow).
Another workflow uses Fontwork, which shows up for text boxes (cf. bug 94535).

Indeed, it is a nice way, although suffers from having the same name as the newer feature, which works differently.
Here are instructions on using it in Draw: https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Faq/Draw/101
