I wish there were more ways to configure my coordinate or measured grid labels like:

  • adding a halo
  • having the label follow the grid lines instead of being either vertical or horizontal
  • being able to choose whether the label is drawn above, on top of or under the line

In short: Give me the same options as for labels of line features in my map. Thanks!

100% agreed.  additional ability to also add text, i.e. an "E" before an easting and "N" before a Northing would also be nice.

Additionally: To give more flexibility: integrate full formatting properties for the labels, e. g. the ability to choose, which digits I want to see and how are these digits formatted (sub, sup, ...). Just like the label properties of a layer.

Most of these are available in ArcGIS Pro with grid tags and robust text symbol support. See Work with grid label tags for more information.
