importing a series of individual labels
Posted 05 February 2010 - 02:33 PM
Has anyone thought of a clever way to bring those into an Illustrator file so they'd be separate labels that could then be dragged to the appropriate streets?

Its amazing that AI won't let you import files.

That looks like a great script.
It would be interesting to try and tweak the "verticalTolerance" variable for Maplex street label exports in order to try and join broken baselines - but presently the script is only intended for individual lines of horizontal text.
This copied from script
// If a selected text anchors vertical coordinate is different,
// the text areas are assumed to be sequential lines,
We need someone to define instances of X and Y coordinate differentiation (as well as rotation) for cartographic use. This would be awesome to to have for Maplex generated labeling that is not all horizontal.
