I am actually trying ArcGIS 10 Desktop for my organization in order to evaluate the benefits to migrate to ESRI's technology in a near future. Actually, we are using MapInfo and FME. One of our main interest in ArcGIS is the possibility to use MAPLEX for automatic label positioning.

My question is the following: is it possible to create annotations from labels in a single feature class at multiple scale using MAPLEX? Im working with Data Driven Page and I want to place some labels manually. The tool tiled labels annotation can only receive polygone in input but I need to create annotations on points feature class.

Any suggestion? Is there a solution with Python?

Thank you
