So, even seasoned GISers know sometimes you have to trial and error with labels a lot. The little cartoons are often great in Arc. I think for most GP tools they show exactly what will happen. But for me I find the label descriptions and cartoons hard to understand. It would be cool, if it had a moving sample next to each button. For example, if you started increasing feature weight, it would move the a demo label from a feature, next to the button, as you increase or decrease the weight value. So it would be interactive and you could immediately see the effect of what you are doing.

Hi Kevin,

Not interactive, but the documentation does include images for the parameters.  For example the Weights doc has a before and after scenario to show the setting

https://pro.arcgis.com/en/pro-app/latest/help/mapping/text/weight-labels-and-features.htm

Other help topics show the different settings in real life scenarios.  See the Offset topic below

Hope this helps
