Building label classes from symbology classes

Label classes allow you to use a different text symbol to label different types of features in the same layer. For example, you can label cities with a large population in a larger font than those with a smaller population.
You can specify a different label field, symbol, scale range, label priority, and set of label placement options for each label class.
