Bullet Leader Labels

Discussion created by will.l on Aug 13, 2012
Hello everybody,

I am currently trying to label building information on my map and none of the default setting seem to allow me to show the information as organized and clean as I would like it to. Even when I use bullet leaders, everything is just clustered in the map and the bullets fly in every direction.

So what I've ended up doing is converting the labels to annotations, then manually moving the bullets to stack on each other nicely (took me 3hrs). The problem is once I've changed that into annotation, in the future, I will have to manually input new information separtely into each bullet.

So here's my question, is there a way that ArcGIS can automatically put the bullet labels in a exploded form ( away from the cluster of building footprints and the bullet lines don't cross each other), and then group and neatly stack upon each other?

If not, could someone please give me any better suggestions on how to do label building info?

Thanks in advance,
