Hello, is it possible to keep the dragged labels in the same configuration when import the same points with the same numbers second time (with different decsriptions) choosing overwrite option? I want to avoid to move the points second time to make the drawing readable.
Solved! Go to Solution.
You could try to pin the labels, but I think you're out of luck on this one.
Open your tool space, hit the settings tab, if they are points that have the point info open the points + and it will show Label Styles, open the + on that. Right click on the point style you are trying to keep the drag state and open "edit".
Under Dragged State make sure all the settings for masking and font type are correct first and then under Display if it shows Stacked Text, change it to "As Composed". And there you go...it drove me crazy too... trying to go between two screens regen all the time updating xref's... it was crazy... finally a solution!!! Hope that helps!
OK that was so easy. Thanks Joe-Bouza. I didn't know that.
But maybe somebody know the solution for another problem. When changing "display" from Stacked Text to As Composed - what I need. Is there any possibility to set the label to behave like Stacked Text when dragging from the right side to the left. To precise - adjust label to the left when it's dragged to the right and adjust to the right when it's dragged to the left as it is when choosing Stacked Text option.
I've found somewhere information that's not possible but maybe It's not true?

As for your secondary question, I don't think it's possible to get the 'as composed' to flip to left or right justification. I don't quite follow with what's wrong with the 'stacked text' for you. It might be easier to fix that problem instead.
Credit where credit is due! Give kudos or accept as solution whenever you can.
'Stacked text' has different limitation. It can has only one color for all visible features
Thanks for the advice. I've just mark the post as Solution for the previous problem
That is the solution I was looking for (I received it from Curtis Smith on one of the LinkedIn group). Maybe will help someone.
"There is a way to do this with stacked text. Instead of setting the color in the label style composer window (where offsets, height, border, etc. is set for each component), set the color (or any other text formatting) in the Text Component Editor. Switch over to the Format Tab, pick the text you want the first color, and change it. Then drag over the 2nd line of text and give it a different color. The different formatting options you have for stacked text are Justification, Font, Color, Bold, Italics, and Underline... just like in the MText editor."
