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.

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.
