I am trying to label some polygons using boundary label placement with Remove Duplicate Labels set to Remove all. For some reason ArcGIS Pro is not honoring the Remove Duplicates. What I really want to accomplish is for a single label to be on each line in the middle of the line (as shown by the yellow highlight). I know this was an option in ArcMap. Any idea why it doesn't work in Pro?
From pro. That highlighted area is what I want the labels to look like, one label in the center of the line. The south line is putting 3 repeating sets of labels and the east line is not centered which is what I want. There is nothing there to interfere with the labels to prevent them from labeling correctly, I have turned everything else off. The main thing is that they shouldn't be repeating at all having set them to remove all duplicates.
I guess I should note that this is a polygon layer I am working with. I assumed it would label each side one time (I feel like this has worked for other projects before for me) I think just converting the labels to anno and moving them manually is the only route.
