Exporting Annotation to Illustrator: Point Text vs. Text on Path
I construct topographic atlases using ArcGIS with MapBook and Adobe Illustrator. We have a very nice annotation dataset we use for many of our labels, such as physical features, roads, and hydrography. We export the atlas pages to Illustrator for final label placement and finishing. A major problem for us is the fact that most annotated labels export to Illustrator as "text on a path", and often the last character in a text string will be hidden. The only solution is to extend the path the text is on to make room for the last character, which is very time consuming. Is there a way to ensure that all annotation exports as "point text", as is the case with dynamic labels? Also, annotated text does not export with the correct CMYK color values, but dynamic labels do. If we could solve these problems it would save us a lot of time.
