Mauricio - Assuming you're using ArcMap here. If you add graphic text/lines/etc only in Layout View, they're only present in the map layout you're creating but not in Data View. If you want to see the graphic text/lines/etc in BOTH Layout View and Data View, then you need to add them in Data View only. When you switch over to Layout View, you'll them there too.
Yes, you can use the Clip geoprocessing tool to limit the features in a feature class. You do need a clipping polygon such as a city/county/area boundary. The tool creates a new feature class (geodatabase or shapefile). There are other ways to do this but this is the first thing that came to my mind.
Thank you for all your help, I’m learning how to use the software on my own, very hard without a person to show me how, but I have used ArcMap in the past. So I need all the help I can get. Sorry for all the trouble that I’m putting you thru!. thanks

Good morning, I’m trying to build label expressions using the format that the company wants to display in our existing fiber shape file. Now my custom label expressions need to be inside the expression fields or below the FID in order to work. I don’t know how to place them there, I hope I’m making sense. Enclosed is a snap shot of my question. thanks
