Hi GIS folks,
I'm confused on how conversion on labels to annotations works in ArcPro. It seems a bit more complicated than how it works in ArcMap.
Specifically - whenever I've tried to simply "convert labels to annotation" in ArcPro, they simply disappear. I noticed when I select features then run the conversion to annotation, it sometimes produces an annotation layer (but only for the ones the features that I selected). Regardless, it seems unnecessary that I have to select the features that I want to convert to annotations everytime. If I don't select, it produces an empty annotation layer.
Does anyone know why the labels just disappear unless I select them (again, there were some that I selected and they still disappeared after the conversion)? This seems way more complex than it needs to be. Am I missing something?
On that note - I became fed-up with attempting annotations that I just tried to insert text in the map as a substitute (I just needed to move a single label). This also proved to be confusing. Any words of wisdom or pro-tips people can share about adding text to the map would also be appreciated.
