ArcGIS Pro 2.5: How to label polygon layer based on a particular rotation stored in a field?

 

For example, for point layer, one can label the features based on a particular rotation stored in a field. Wy this is not available for polygon layer?

 

Can this be considered as an idea for enhancement?

Mediterranean sea and Gaza Strip could use that 'curved in polygon' that Marco demonstrates in his screen grab

We need to be able to rotate polygon labels ESRI

Hi @JamalNUMAN 

the best way to do this is to use the Straight in polygon option combined with the Try horizontal position first.  remember to take off the stacking.  For labels like the Sea you can put that in it's own label class and then start to experiment with curved labels

Thank you for the help.

 

We still need to be able to rotate labels based on angles stored in a particular field in the attribute table when working with polygons.
