I am maintaining a park polygon feature class. I have added the feature class to ArcMap and then change the color of the polygon. But how to set the polygons to a mixture of symbols e.g. flowers and green and they placed in slant lines?

Labeling is my issue.  In 10.6.1 esri fixed the labeling inside a polygon issues.  Like remove duplicates. Which is great.  but I am still having some issues with offsetting the labels inside the polygon.  Please take a look at the two screen shots.  SS 1 (client supplied map) is what I am attempting to do, and SS 2 (my map) is what I am coming up… (Show more)

In my regular map view, all the labels are oriented properly. However, when I rotate the map frame in my layout view, all the labels change accordingly but the boat launch symbols are rotated. How do I fix this?

What I did to transfer the locations is create a road along the coast and then add points along the road. There seems to be a… (Show more)

We get parcels from an outside source. 2 of the fields "Grantor" and "file_as_name" contain an &.  In maptips the & converts to an underscore.  How do I keep the & an & and prevent it from looking like an underscore?

I am currently making a map set that has 5 lines of text for each label, with each page displaying anywhere from 3-50+ labels. As you can imagine, some of the pages look extremely congested. I have tried the standard label engine, maplex label engine, and moving annotations by hand, but nothing seems to be working. Ideally I'd like key numbering… (Show more)
