I'm labeling features in a map book (MapLogic) in ArcMap using Maplex labeling. I have the "Never Remove..." box checked within Maplex for the layers, however, some of my features that have a very small area (e.g. 0.005 sqft) are missing labels - they're just not placing. All labels are dynamic.
When I try to create annotations for those layers (tried selecting just the features whose labels weren't placing, and all the features within the map), no annotations were created for those unplaced labels (even when I selected 'create annotation for unplaced..')
Is this a bug that others have experienced, or is there some tweek within Maplex settings that I need to do?
Here're a few screenshots of one of the layer's Maplex label settings that won't place - the feature's area is <0.005 sqft.
EDIT: This is in ArcGIS 10.1
