Setting polygon label placement properties

There are three separate label placement options for polygon features. By default, labels are placed horizontally.

You can also choose whether to place each label only if it falls completely inside the polygon feature being labeled by checking the Only place label inside polygon option.

  1. Open the Label Manager by clicking the Label Manager button Label Manager on the Labeling toolbar.
  2. Click a label class in the Label Classes list.
  3. Click the placement options you want from the Placement Properties box.
  4. Optionally, click Properties to see the complete set of label placement properties.

  5. Click OK.
