I run this through the toolbox in ArcCatalog or ArcMap. The MXD you are running it on does not have to be open. #Set Input Parameters mxd = arcpy.GetParameterAsText(0) PDFpath = ...

If you do need to make a lot of manual adjustments, go to page 1, convert to annotation, adjust labels manually, go to next page, turn off anno layer, turn on labels, convert to anno, rename anno group for this map page and adjust label manually.

If I remember correctly, the guts of it basically grabs one point at a time, gets the geometry and snaps it to the line. Then it finds the % along the line that that point is and adds it to a long list. ...
