Building label classes from symbology classes

  1. Click the Label Manager button Label Manager on the Labeling toolbar.
  2. Click a layer in the Label Classes list.
  3. Check the check box next to the symbology class or classes in the Select symbology categories box that you want to use to make a new label class or classes.
  4. Click the Add button.
  5. Click Yes or No on the Overwrite label classes dialog box depending on what you want to do with your existing label 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.
