Hi,

I'm making a map in ArcGis Pro 2.1 .

In this map I want to display Lables with 2 lines (The ID above, a description/name underneath). The 2 lines-label is not a problem, within VB or Arcade I found the option for creating a multi-line label.

But the problem is  I want them to be centre-aligned, but when I want to check the option for Centre Alignment in the Lable Class settings I see the 3 options for Horizontal Alignment being grayed out. So i can't change the horizontal alignment of my labels.

What am I doing wrong, do I need to change a setting or is this a known bug in 2.1?

Hi Dave,

You can align your stacked labels on the Label Class pane in the Stacking section.  By the sounds of it you're trying to do it through the text symbol properties.

Hi Wendy,

Thanks! I got them working and behaving in the way i want.

You are right about me trying it through the text properties.

Seemed a logical place to me too. With the buttons being there, but all grayed out.

I tried switching off Maplex, thinking the problem was within the usage of the maplex-engine. But that didn't work either. So i got a little bit frustrated, because in ArcMap it was so easy.
