Has anyone experienced the following in ArcGis 10.1?

Question asked by pattenm on Sep 19, 2014

Our GIS Admin is attempting to create framed map sections to print out that contain map text over a number of locations in the map section. When he rotates the frame to center electric utility lines the text off set and this is not what he wants. He researched and set the
Advanced ArcMap Settings option Rotate marker symbols with dataframe following the instructions below, but this did not correct his issue and all the text is still off set (he wants to keep the text straight over the locations.

Solution

In the Advanced ArcMap Settings program, check the Rotate marker symbols with
dataframe option. Follow these steps:

1. Close ArcMap and navigate to :\Program Files\ArcGIS\Desktop10.1\Utilities.

2. Double-click the application named AdvancedArcMapSettings.

3. Under the Dataframe tab, check the box labeled Rotate marker symbols with
dataframe.

4. Click Apply. The error is repaired.

The default ArcMap setting is that the check box for this setting is checked.

More information

Some ArcMap users will make changes to advanced ArcMap settings to support
various custom mapping workflows. To support this, a special program is
included with ArcGIS for managing custom ArcMap settings. This program, named
AdvancedArcMapSettings.exe, is contained in the ArcGIS Utilities folder found
at :\Program Files\ArcGIS\Desktop10.1\Utilities.
