ArcMap 10.1: Labels on tiles I have set up for data driven pages randomly locate around the page instead of in the centre or in the corner where I want them to be despite allowing overlapping labels and setting labels weight to high. How do I choose a position for these labels pls?

  • Are these labels based on features, or based on the page/tile? I.e., do you want different titles for each page, or are there different features in each page that you want labeled?

  • @Baltok Labels are based on the tile of which there are circa. 100. RyanDalton: Annotation class was created as per your suggestion but my annotation edit tool was greyed out in edit mode so I had no control over them. I am using ArcMap 10.1 Standard.

For maximum control over the placement of labels, you will want to convert the labels to an Annotation feature class, which you can then specifically place in whatever location and orientation you choose.
