Support Tip  

Map Layer Labels


Most map layers have two types of labels for each map unit: Codes and Names. For example, a 5-Digit ZIP Code will have a numeric code such as "13224", and a name label "Syracuse". In addition to these default labels, map layers can also be labeled with numeric data from linked data sources. Ensure that the layer is turned on using the Layers tab before opening the Label Selection dialog or the labels will not appear.
