I have a polygon theme but the polygons represent a drainage so they are so thin.  Is it possible to put labels in curved manner with this kind of theme? Or how a can place this kind of label in the right manner? Thanks.

Mapping Center Answer:

Since you have the Maplex extension, you can use the "River Placement" setting under the Placement Properties to place curved labels in your river polygons. For more information on this, you can refer to the Placing polygon labels for rivers online help topic.
