How would you go about creating vertical labels? I need to recreate the road numbering system for Forest Service roads. The arterial and collector classification is horizontal (and thereby easy), but the local class is three digits displayed vertical.
Mapping Center Answer:
I was able to do this using a VB script function to read the draw the first number in the name, then add a new line, draw the second number, add a new line, and draw the third number. In my test, I drew the names in a highway shield type of label. You can see my results below. Maybe something like this will work for you. If you think it will, you can use the label expression I created (it's attached here) as a starting point. If you load it and change [HWY_NUM] to your field name, then you will be at least part of the way there.
