I like using the ArcGIS Topographic Basemap as a background layer for my maps, but was wondering if there is a way so that place name labels don't show up on the map. I like to add my own labels for cities and towns of interest, but find the map looks messy with the ArcGIS Basemap place name labels showing as well. I would actually prefer that the topographic maps had no labels at all. Is it possible to show just the features of the Topographic Basemap without labels?
I see there is a options for Places Info int he Table of Contents but it says those layers can't be turned off when I try to click on them.
