The Labeling Summary report presents a general overview of the labeling classes in the map for quality assurance and performance checks. It identifies potential problems with your labeling parameters that may impact labeling performance, map readability, and the ability to convert labels to annotation. The summary report lists all the layers in the map and all the label classes and their properties in each layer. Each layer has a minimum of one label class, whether or not it's currently being labeled. Layers that can't be labeled, such as layers referencing raster data, are not listed.
- To access the Labeling Summary report, on the Labeling tab, in the Map group, click More > Summary.
- Optionally, use the Search bar to search for a layer name, label class name, or a message from the Information reported chart below.
- Optionally, use the filter to filter the messages.
All label classes regardless of labels being turned on or off.
Label classes that are labeled.
Label classes that are not labeled.
Label classes that are not labeled. Features are still working as barriers to other labels due to a feature weight being set on the label class.
All label classes regardless of scale range.
In scale range
Label classes that are labeled at the present scale of the map.
The Labeling Summary report contains a listing for each layer that provides an overview of the main properties for your label class. Review information presented in red text, as it's reporting either an error that is preventing labels from being displayed or an issue that will cause decreased performance in your map labeling. The following items are checked and may be listed for each layer:
|Information reported||Possible results|
Is the label class turned on or off?
Is there an x,y offset applied to the symbol?
Is there an SQL query for the label class?
Is there a scale range set for the label class?
Are there duplicate label class names?
Is there an advanced labeling expression set?
Use the search box at the top of the Labeling Summary dialog box to filter the text shown in the report. For instance, search the name of a label class to see listings related to that label class only.
All label classes are shown by default, but you can click the Filter button at the top of the Labeling Summary dialog box to limit the summary listing to show feature classes that are labeled, unlabeled, or unlabeled weighted or to limit the summary listing to just the label classes shown in the current scale range.
