Add labels to features
on feature layers. Specify one the following for the label:
- Multiline (Specifies that the label can
have multiple lines of text, but no advanced placement functionality.)
- Advanced placement (specifies a single-line
label which follows a path and shrinks to fit. A single label is
used for feature segments that have the same property value.)
Also, specify the label
text, font, size, format, color, background style and color, alignment,
and rotation of the label.
The label is placed near
the line, point symbol, or polygon. For point layers, if precise
placement is important, display the label at a point location.
If a feature label obscures
another label, it is not displayed. Feature labels are drawn on
top of point symbols, lines, and polygons. By default, feature labels do
not obscure point symbols. You can allow feature labels to obscure
performance reasons, the maximum number of labels drawn is 2000. If
there are so many labels that geometry would be obscured if they
were drawn, AutoCAD Map 3D does not draw them.
