Hi,  in arcmap it was very easy to make custom pictograms for labelling.

Now, I can't find in the tutorial the way to do it.  If I'm not mistaken, we can't directly edit pictograms, we have to make a style, create a new element in it, etc.


But, in arcmap we could build picto from many layers.  Straightforward,  whom we choose from the font in our computer a symbol, choose the colour, size, move it up and down, left to right, add a layer and so on to make the pictogram we need.  We could also use background to be in the back like a shield that when done show the street number on the shield we choose.  Also we use it in labelling annotation to have annotation symbols, by putting a point without size and colour with a background with the desire pictogram.


So how to do the same in pro.  Make multiple layers, use background, etc.

In fact, I found to edit my text but.  In labelling I can't find the background attribute we had in arcmap.  For now I'm doing it in arcmap, and import them.

So where are the arcmap Advanced Text / Text Background / Marker text Bacground (which I use in arcmap).


I can change the foreground but, see no background to edit.
