Feature Labeling- Obscure Feature Symbols

I am running Autodesk Map3D 2012 and I need to label my feature points no matter if they overlap or not.   The Map3D documention refers to a check box that will allow what I believe I need- but I cannot find the checkbox in the style editor.  

Does anyone have a solution to this- I'm sure it's simple and I appreciate the help.  Thanks.  


Here's a clip from the Autocad documentation:


To allow labels to obscure points on the selected layer

  1. In the Display Manager , select the point layer. Click the Style button.
  2. In the Style Editor, click Allow Other Labels To Obscure Feature Symbols On This Layer.

That feature is not available in the advanced styling that 2012 defaults to. You will have to switch the styling back (not sure of the command off the top of my head) to how it was in 2011. In 2013 they completely removed said functionality. Seems to be going the wrong way eh?


You can assign your labels to a fixed position and they should all show up that way, but it won'e be as pretty.
