Problem: Labels do not display in a projected map
Labeling a map that is projected sometimes does not display any labels.
This is a known issue. The map contains a geodatabase annotation layer that has a feature weight greater than none. This prevents labels from being placed on the map.
Solution or Workaround
Make sure the feature weight for the annotation layer is set to none.
- Right-click on the map and select Properties.
- Switch to the Labels tab.
- Click the Conflict Detection Rules button.
- For each annotation layer, right-click the Feature Weight column and select None.
Conflict Detection Rules dialog box used for labeling. Invoke from Data Frame Properties Labels tab.
