The Labeling Summary dialog box

The Labeling Summary dialog box presents a general overview of the labeling classes in the data frame for quality assurance and performance checks. It will point out potential problems with your labeling rules that may impact labeling performance, map readability, and the ability to convert labels to annotation. The summary report lists all the layers in the data frame and all the label classes with their properties in each of these layers. Each layer will have a minimum of one label class whether it is currently being labeled or not. Layers that can't be labeled, such as layers referencing raster data, are not listed. To access the Labeling Summary dialog box, click the Summary button on the Label Manager.
