Use expression in grid labels
I'd like to know how it would be possible to label our graticules using expressions instead of the default style. Our client ask us to add the suffix "m E./N." to our UTM grid labels ("330 000 m E.", "5 715 000 m N." instead of only "330 000") but we can't customize those labels except by converting them into graphics which we try to avoid to facilitate the updates when we have to pan and/or zoom within our maps. Is this possible?
Mapping Center Answer:
If you add a measured grid you can set these kinds of labels on the corner labels: Go to the measured grid's properties page and on the Labels tab set the Label Style Format to Corner Label and then click the Additional Properties button (just below the Font Size and Color controls in that dialog). In the Grid Label Properties dialog on the Principal Digits tab set the Strings (these default to m., E and N).
