How do you stop a label bounding box from overlapping features

Question asked by MGG_Beca on Aug 18, 2020



I am using ArcGIS Pro 2.6.


I have a layer (A) with a label class with a 50 point offset, a simple black box outline with a 2 point gap and a simple black leader line.  I have another layer (B) in my map that I don't want the labels or their bounding boxes to overlap.  I have set the feature weight and boundary weight of layer B to 1000.


However the bounding box of the labels overlaps the features.  Is this not taken into account when preventing overlaps?  The text does not overlap the features, so I am assuming that only the text is prevented from overlapping.  Is this correct?
