I think the answer is NO. If someone could confirm that, I'd appreciate it.
What's happening is that our Surveyor wants any parcel area of 1 Acre of less to be labeled as Acre not Acres. i.e.
46.24 Acres - 0.18 Acre
I thought that I might be able to do that with an Expression. But you can't use static text in an expression.
What it looks like I'm going to have to do is create a separate Label Style for parcels of 1 acre or less. I think that's a messy way to do it, but I don't see any other choice right now.
You could use an expression to check the acreage and return a text size (plotted height / 12). Your label would have to have two components that use the expression. One will have Acres and the other will be Acre.
Let me see if I can make your day.
As you have seen the initial label for a parcel has limitations due to the fact that it is used to pick the parcel itself when you don't want to edit the parcel segments.
However a second area label can be placed on a parcel and this one is text editable. So add the second one edit it to suit how you want it and set the initial label to no display.

Thanks. I'll have to take a look at that. I've already created a new Label Style so I could publish the plan. But I'd like to clear this up for the future and add it to our template.
That works well. I think I'll do it that way for now. I still have to try Stacy's idea. That might be a better long term solution since it would be automatic.
You will need two expressions and two components for a single label. It will be automatic but the only downside is that the dragged state needs to be "as composed" so you will have to add a manual leader if needed. See the attached drawing for an example.
I'm working on duplicating your style. I'll let you know how it goes. I may have some questions. Now that I see it in action. I understand about the text heights.
Got it. If I hadn't fumbled a decimal point in one of the expressions, I would have been done sooner. Thanks you, Stacy, That's a nice addition to our parcel labels.
