I have created a stacked label using ESRI Maplex. However, I would like to reduce the spaces between the lines of this stacked label to save on space. Is this possible? Below is an example of what I'm asking.
You could try if reducing the font "Leading" gets you what you're looking for.
Thanks very much for the tip. I haven't heard of this method before and had to look it up after you pointed it out. I think you're absolutely right...this will be my solution. I will give this a try as soon as I get back to my workstation in the morning.
It took a short while to get the exact syntax sorted out....but I did get it to work. This will really help when plotting a lot of these on a map. With this ability to "tweak" the labels it makes it so much easier to fit them into a small space while maintaining cartographic integrity.
The syntax that ended up working is:
"<LIN leading = '-3'>" & [Field1] & "" &vbnewline& "" & [Field2] & "" &vbnewline& "" & [Field3] & " " & [Field4] & " " & [Field5] & "</LIN>"
Within the Maplex Label Manager I also selected the "Stack Label" option.
Thanks again for your help.
