Leader Lines

improved Features are sometimes too small to fit a label in or around it. MAP LabelPro can automatically add leader lines to these features. Specify the ability to cross lines, the leader width and arrow style. Placement is clean and aesthetic.

Angled placement

Angled Placement

MAP LabelPro takes into consideration the dominant angle of a feature and places the label parallel to it.

Stacked Placement

Stack long, one-line labels into multi-line labels. Works great on multiple word labels such as streets, points of interests and densely labelled areas.

Stacked placement
Offset placement

Offset Placement

Place labels using an offset or on a centerline. Offset labels above or below a line. Vertical split option places multiple word labels above and below the line and relative to the center of the line. If the generated label only has one word, it will be placed on the suppression layer. A centerline option places labels directly on top of the line.

Font Reduction

Automatically reduce the label size incrementally, when necessary. Each step shrinks the selected font by 0.5 pt. Very useful in densely labelled areas.

Font Reduction


Labels are allowed to overhang a line up to a set percentage. The percentage of overhang is relative to the start of the label and the end of the line.
