I use ArcMap 10.2 to produce map document containing a lot of label boxes with line callout. Sometimes, I have so many labels that leaders come very matted. Then I use Illustrator to unravel.
Is it possible to tune Maplex to prevent leaders from superposing labels?
Unfortunately I can't reduce the size of boxes (graphic charter) neither its content. And I need the data exhaustivity.
Here are my Maplex parameters:
View unplaced labels
Placement quality to best
The red, gray and black lines label weight ranking to 1000
Leader tolerance = 0
Label offset = 15 mm with secondary offset between 15 mm and 200 mm
Label buffer to 0%
Background label and 'Never remove' options unchecked
