I have created a series of map templates for one of our departments that each have an associated model.
As part of the model I also created a lyr file for symbology and labeling (the subject parcel layer portion). [ATTACH=CONFIG]23705[/ATTACH]
This is referenced in the output feature properties of my model.
The tool runs correctly and the Subject Parcel_layer gets added to the map template. The overall symbology from the layer file is correct, however, the labeling preferences I've set up are not (font size, type, etc.).
As a side note, the Subject Parcel Layer does not exist in the template, it gets added through the model.
Any ideas on why the labeling portion is not being honored?
I believe Layer files do not store Labelling properties. If you wish to apply the same labelling scheme to a new dataset, I suggest changing the source file of the existing data set that is labelled properly and point to your new dataset.
