I have a map that I send to customers and when I select the parcel(s) of interest the labels for water mains and sewer mains get covered by the selection. How can I stop this behavior?
Can you specify more on what platform you are viewing this map (ArcGIS Online, Desktop, etc.)? And maybe post a screenshot as well?
Yes. I am using ArcGIS Desktop 10.2.2. The red boxes on the screen shot indicate the issue I am asking about.
I think you can't avoid it if your selection symbology has a fill. If it is just an outline, such as the default, you shouldn't see your labels blocked. If you want to use a fill, you could make the selection, create a layer in your project from it, and then symbolize that selection layer however you wish.
Currently I am using an outline selection. I think I have tried a "fill" in the past and experienced the same behavior.
Have you tried doing to same tasks in ArcGIS Pro? I wonder if the same behavior exists.
I currently do not have ArcGIS Pro installed.
