How do I annotate a line that is Split into multiple segments with an annotation for each segment? It is giving the line a single annotation when it needs an annotation on each split segment. As you can see in the picture the blue line is pointing to the each label, but when I convert it to annotation it only labels the line once instead of an annotation for each segment. The line is segmented where it intersects the polygons. Using ArcMap 10.3.1. enter image description here

You can choose to place one label per feature part by changing the Duplicate Labels option in the Placement Properties menu of the Label Manager: Add Duplicate Labels per feature part

    Thanks for the response, this does indeed work. I had to turn off my maplex engine in order to correct the issue. – GIS_GOD Jan 25 '17 at 17:25
