Hi there. I'm wondering how to display only a certain percentage of the labels on a shapefile. In my case, I have a street file and want some of the streets to be labeled but not others, to give some sense of the area but to not overwhelm the map with street labels. I don't care which streets are labeled. (I found a way to do it by making a new field and populating it randomly with 0s and 1s, and then labeling only the 1s, but I wonder if there's a more convenient way to do this.)
