I make city maps with ArcMap 10.2.2 that I export to Illustrator for finalization.
To label streets, I use the Maplex
Street Placement as below:
As I need to be able to rework labels with Illustrator easily, I use the 'straight' placement to avoid curved labels.
The problem is even using the straight placement, in Illustrator side, I get some separated letters labels:
Most labels arrive in separated straight words, and some of them are texts on path. Both cases are convenient to edit, but separated letters case involves rewriting the whole street name.
Does anyone know how to prevent Maplex/Illustrator export from creating separated letters labels?
