When setting labels to rotate based on a field, annotation will overlap other features even if the weight is set to 1000. Does anyone know if there is a way to force it to follow both the rotation value and the feature weight? Even if the label engine had to increase the offset or shift the label to the other side of the feature or resize the labels within a set range to sqeeze it in? Open to any ideas or tools/scripts that can get this done. Using ArcMap 9.3 & 10 at the ArcINFO level with Maplex currently.
Any ideas are appreciated. Thanks.
