ESRI® announces the ArcGIS Desktop 9.1 Maplex for ArcGIS Formatting Tag
Label Placement Patch. This Patch solves a problem with the incorrect placement
of labels when the label text contains formatting tags. It deals specifically
with the issues listed below under Issues Addressed with this
We recommend that all ArcGIS Desktop 9.1 customers with the Maplex for ArcGIS Extension, who place labels with text formatting tags, download and install this Patch at their earliest convenience to ensure the highest quality experience when working with ArcGIS Desktop 9.1.
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.
- Under the C:\Program Files\ArcGIS\Bin folder:
ArcGIS Desktop 9.1 must be installed before you can install this Patch.

- Download ArcGIS-91-Maplex-Patch.exe
to a location other than your ArcGIS Desktop installation location.
- Double-click the setup file to start the install process.
