Label Expression, Abbreviation Dictionary Error

Question asked by buccley on Aug 17, 2015

I have a feature that I have to use a formatting tag on (bold), my expression is something like this:

 

[field] + " " + "<bol>" + [field2] + "</bol>" + "\n" + [field]

 

The expression works fine. The problem is the abbreviation dictionary doesn't recognize stuff to abbreviate. Conversely, if I use the exact same expression removing the bold tags:

 

[field] + " " + [field2] + "\n" + [field]

 

then the abbreviation dictionary works fine. I've tried all 3 Parsers available (VBScript, JScript, and Python -- Advanced) and the same thing happens. It seems to be an issue with the formatting tags messing up the abbreviation dictionary.

 

I'm using ArcMap10.2.2, does anyone have any suggestions, or had this issue, know how to fix it?
