ArcPro Scene - labels will not display

I have layers in Scene (ArcGIS Pro) and when I turn labels on they do not display.  Does anyone have any tips and tricks to share on how to display labels in a Scene?

Thanks much-

The solution in the links above is to drag the layer to the 3D layers and that works fine in ArcGIS Pro.  However when I try to create a mobile scene package with the layers in the 3D layers I get unknown errors which I did not get when the layer was in the 2D layers.  Is there any other way to get the labels to display in the scene?

Unfortunately they still do not render.  I am certain that the label has been enabled in the Labelling tab, and the limits are set to none.  Sometimes I have to restart to program several times before the labels finally do render.  Any other suggestions?


**After experimentation, I noticed what was wrong.  My method was to keep the actual polygon item in the 2D layer, and make a copy of the polygon to place in the 3D layer for labeling purposes.  I would turn off the polygon stroke in the symbol properties format window so there was not a redundant polygon.  But the labels would not render.  When I turned back on the polygon stroke, the labels would return.  

My workaround is to make the color of my 3D polygon layer colorless.
