I often need to create annotation in irregular areas, and creating annotation within the visible extent creates far too many labels that must be manually removed. 

If it is possible to create a polygon linked creation area, much like a rubbersheet area, it would be very convenient! 

I would be interested in being able to do this programmatically via Python, although I think drawing a polygon would be easier.

Hi @DenverBilling 

Thank you for submitting this idea.  The Convert Labels to Annotation tool respects map clipping.  Knowing that, does it work for you to clip the map to the irregular area in which you'd like to create the annotation?

Interesting @KoryKramer , this appears to do exactly what I was looking for. Thanks for the demo!
