When importing a shp file for street names into my map Map 3D see's it as a polygon. When I edit it to text it has 4 street names in the shape of a polygon. Is there any way to convert this shape to show only one street name?
Im new to map, i just pulled it in as a shape file. Should i do something diffrent?
Pulled it in? HOW, what command did you use? Mapimport, drag and drop from windows explorer, dataconnect or what? How do you know it has 4 streetnames? What are you using for creating the text lables?

opened your shapefile in ArcInfo and it is a polygon and there are street names under the field "TextString"
opened Map 3D and brought the shapefile
I connected to the shapefile...then changed the style to show just the text...in the Task pane click on Style
then see if you can change the properties to mimic my attachments...
hope this helps...
