I'm trying to make a map and I want to label the streets that make the boundary of an area. I've got labels turned on. When I click the label tool it only seems to want to label the county. I've tried making the streets the only selectable label. The street segment has a name, because I can view it in the identify pane. When I bring up the label manager the street group is highlighted. I tried moving the street layer to the top layer.

Is the 'label features' box checked? are you using Maplex label engine? Some advanced settings in there may cause overrides. Pictures help.

Yes, label features is checked. I've tried it both Maplex and without.

I'm not sure why a picture would help. There's a road without a label and I want to add a label to it.

More to see the options you've selected than the lack of labels.  Anyway good luck.
