Hello!

 

Just wanted to know if there's a way to place the symbols of one layer on top of the labels of another layer without having to convert them to annotations? (see pics)

P.S. - I'm not sure if this is related to geoprocessing lol but asking here anyway because I couldn't scour anything from the other corners of the internet

@MShairah ,

I don't think there is any option for overlaying the labels by symbols in ArcMap or ArcGIS Pro. However you can manage your labeling by In Beyond and Out Beyond scale levels at what scale to show or hide and also toggling the Pause on and off on the Labeling ribbon. (see screenshots below).

Hello Mehdi!

 

Seems as if this feature is only available in ArcGISPro? I can only use ArcGIS as of now but thanks 👍

@MShairah 

They are also available in ArcMap. To access the In beyond and Out beyond:

Go to the properties of the feature class > Labels tab > Scale Range > click Don't show labels when zoomed. The label Pause is also available in the Labeling toolbar: Right click on the toolbar at the top > Select Labeling > Pause and Lock options
