I am working with ArcMap 10.6.1, also have ArcPro 2.2 available.   I have three road layers. All of them have some features in common but at least two have features that the other two do not have.

I have attached a PDF with the two screenshots. The… (Show more)

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?

I am transferring locations from a paper map to ArcMap so that I can calculate the difference between locations. The locations don't have to be exact because the animal locations I am mapping can cover large distances. 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)
