Adding Text to your Map

Text labels are a key component of a theme's display. Labels are useful for giving map readers a geographic point of reference so that they can identify features in the theme.

You can interactively generate text labels for features using the Label tool, or generate them automatically with the Auto-label function. Furthermore, you can use callout, bullet leader, banner, and highway shield label styles, to name a few. After you've added a text label, you can change its color, size, and font in the Legend Editor or by using the Show Symbol Window menu item. To get to some of these functions you will need to toggle the advanced interface button on the Global GIS dialog.
