I am trying to export a large map 174in x 96in from ArcMap. The map is really big so when I set this custom format from Print Properties and try to export the map I get the message: "ArcGIS Desktop has encountered a serious application error" and the application being closed.

I have created a route events point field based on a table.     When using version 10.2 on a previous computer, the route events would update when the values in the table were changed.  You would change the value in the table then refresh the map view, and the point would update.     I am currently using version 10.6 and this is not happening. … (Show more)

Click to view contentHow can I ensure that polygon labels are roughly centered over the visible portion of the polygon? In this example, the OH and PA labels are positioned nicely, but the NY label is almost at the edge of its polygon - I would like it to be more centered.  I have seen many instances of this problem.   I'm using ArcMap 10.3 with Maplex label engine… (Show more)
