I have an mxd with 29 data driven pages all at the same scale. I have the need to label hundreds of polygon features, so I converted the labels to annotation (stored in geodatabase and feature-linked) for a feature (stored in same geoDB) and am customizing their placement. What is the method for repeating annotation labels on adjacent data driven pages when the feature runs over the edge of the page to another page in layout view? I feel like I'm missing something obvious!
Also, some features do not have labels at all. I've already placed unplaced annotation, and when setting up the labeling in the original polygon feature class, I chose "repeat labels" and unchecked "remove duplicates". How would I label a feature currently without a label through editing the annotation feature class?
I'm using ArcMap 10.3.1 Desktop with advanced license.
UPDATE: I think I solved part I of this issue by selecting the edit arrow for annotation, clicking on the label I want to duplicate, right click, copy. Click in empty space, paste. Creates a new FID in the annotation feature class that is still feature-linked. Move to desired location.
Still wondering about placing a label on a feature without one by editing the annotation feature class. A janky fix has been to just place a label after hitting "Focus Data Frame", but it's obviously not feature-linked and I'm not satisfied with this workaround.
