I'm trying to set up my point label styles and I don't understand how the dragged state settings work. The default setting is "as displayed" but then the leader does not flip, if I change the settings to "stacked text" the leader flips but the text is out of order. See the attached plot of some points to see what I mean, default on the right and stacked text on the left.
How can I set the point label so the leader will flip and keep the label components in the default order?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Be sure to check the justification in the label editor. Setting the justification will cause your text to stay lined up propperly when you move the callout.
Justification seems fine, its that the point number should be first, then the point description under that. Thats how it displays by default, but by default the leader does not flip.
In the Stacked Text mode the text components are placed in the same order in which they are added to the style. You will need to edit the style to accomplish this.
No, can't swap them. But you can copy the elevation & description components, change the anchors to reference the copies, delete the originals, then rename the copies.
Thanks to all for the advice, I got it figured out.
Using the copy and delete method suggested above I got them in the order that I wanted.
Then I had to adjust the Anchor component, the anchor point and the text attachment point of all three componants, kinda tricky.
