I have recently discovered that even though I chose to display the label toolbar through the toolbar menu that it is nowhere to be seen on the monitor. Has anyone encountered this or know a fix to it?

  • Welcome to GIS SE, what version of desktop are you running? – artwork21 May 1 '15 at 16:49

I've asked some question in a comment above but what you can try right away is resetting the ArcMap template:

Close all instances of arc map

Locate and rename the Normal.mxt in ESRI\DesktopXX.X\ArcMap\Templates\Normal.mxt

start ArcMap and turn on the labelling toolbar.

    I've discovered that it was an issue with multiple monitors- laptop lid closed.... when I opened it up it popped up on one of the screens at which point I locked it onto the menu bar to stop it from floating. Thank you for the quick turn around on the comments and suggested assistance. – Steve May 1 '15 at 17:08
  • Apparently my initial comment was removed. PErhaps i didn't add it before closing my browser - I was indeed asking if you use multiple monitors. In any case, you can answer and accept your own question - this is perfectly acceptable and encouraged here. – Jakub Sisak GeoGraphics May 1 '15 at 17:32
