I have a question in regards to the maplex labeling tool. Is it necessary to set the labels to annotation by converting the labels from maplex tool. How different is maplex from the standard labeling. I set my street labels to maplex and then tested by converting to annotation; I could tell the maplex before annotations were converted labels looked better. I am new to using maplex and i am trying to distinguish which labeling tool to use. Also, which is better to use for maplex ArcMap or ArcGIS Pro?
