hey guys, does anyone know of a way to convert a shapefile labels to annotation with arcpy? i have to create a map for every project that i use a bubble box to list all the areas in hectares the shp but the only way i see its possible is with a Mapping Defense plugin??Convert Labels To Annotation—Help | ArcGIS for Desktop is this correct? seems kind of strange thing to bundle it in haha.
thanks for any help.
so some of those may be appropriate
As since you flagged this python
the excerise 3a is the way I typically do it manually, I was hoping to automate it with arcpy but the only code i can find arcpy.ConvertLabelsToAnnotation_defense(mxd, annoFeatures)
requires the mapping defense plugin which seems odd. was hoping someone had a work around for arcpy. thanks for looking tho.
