Please give the creator/editor better control over text size on map notes!!!
We are community planners working with small communities and urban neighborhoods on strategies for economic revitalization. We do a lot of map note work, annotating various areas on an existing map, for example, highlighting big neighborhood sub-areas, box stores, commercial strips, various zones along a street, key institutions and amenities relevant to a discussion, etc. We are very frustrated with labeling these areas, as the only control we have over label size is a scroll function that is only as good as the steadiness of the mapper's hand and eye. It is nearly impossible to size them equally. When you produce a map with fifteen labels and they are all slightly different sizes, it is not at all professional looking. What we need is a function where we can highlight the text, then designate its size. And/or highlight a group of labels and size them all the same.
We are an AGOL-only two-person shop, and love it because it is user-friendly -- we use it as a tool for communication and analysis with non-technical clients -- and affordable. But we need to look good too! Anything you can do to improve this functionality would be appreciated!
