Issues Addressed with this Patch


    CQ00270563 - Dynamic labels containing formatting tags may are incorrectly placed by Maplex for ArcGIS.
    The main issue is:

    • Labels containing text with formatting tags are incorrectly placed during the labeling process. When text contains formatting tags, the positions of the text characters are not properly handled resulting in text at incorrect locations. In this case, text is often placed in the lower left hand extent of the label placement run.

      This patch resolves the improper handling of formatting tags during label placement that was causing the text to be incorrectly placed.
