Mapbook Adjacent Labels
Hello. I am working with Mapbook in ArcMap 9.3 at work, that has been previously set up. I am not familiar with it and am having problems with adjacent labels displaying at the corners and centers of the data frame. I only want them to display at the center for each side and have checked the label properties for the grid index layer, the identifier layer, and the map series option tab. Turning these off and on has no effect on the labels. What can I do to fix this problem?
Mapping Center Answer:
The DSMapBook has an option to label adjacent tiles in the map frame that is separate from any standard label options you might set with ArcMap. If you want to turn those off, you'll need to right click on "Map Series" on the MapBook tab in the TOC, select Series Properties, and turn off the "Label neighboring tiles?" on the Options tab. This will turn off all the labeling around the data frame.
If you want to have labels at just the center of each side, then you'll need to dive into the code and update the labeling algorithm but I doubt you'll want to do that!
