One of my layers is still labeling well outside of the clipped data frame extent, and I'm not sure why. Yes, I'm using the Standard Label Engine and would prefer to stick with that -- surely there is a way to make the labels be included in this setting without having to use the Maplex Label Engine?! See below:


Any help is much appreciated!

Hi Kathryn,

I have been testing your issue in ArcMap 10.8.1 but I am unable to reproduce the problem with the data I have. Could you possibly provide me with the data you are using and the properties you have set on the label class?

Hi! Sorry for the late reply; the issue occurs when I use "Clip to shape" on the data frame and then utilize the "Exclude Layers" option. Like this:


Maybe it's a software bug? You can download the public version of our local roads data here, and the county boundary data here if you have time to test out my theory. I used Ziebach County in my example.

Thanks so much!
