Hi there,

I've just encountered this glitch with labeling and the use of the "Clip to Shape" option to "Exclude Layers".  When this option is used, the labels draw outside of the boundary area as defined by the "Clip to Shape". When the "Exclude Layers" option is not selected (i.e. include all of the layers in the clip) the labels do not appear. See the attached images to visualize.

Thankfully, I've been able to work-around this by using a definition query on the attributes of the underlying layers to exclude them entirely. But I could see this being an nuisance otherwise.

Is this a bug? Maybe not, but I thought I'd post it here if anyone else was encountering the same problems.
