Hello all,

I am trying to figure out aspects of LabelPro for Illustrator, but I am running into a problem with too many points left over. I have a points layer with a ton of cities. I am not looking to label every city, but instead only the ones that can be labeled through LabelPro.

Is there a way that, once LabelPro is finished, removing the city points in Illustrator that were not labelled? Is there a way to automatically do this?

Still new to Mapublisher...

Thanks...

Unfortunately no easy way as far as I know.

Try this:
  • Place your text with LabelPro
  • Index it
  • Join the index file to the original features
  • Features that could not be labelled don't appear in the index so the attributes that were created with the join are empty, so you can easily select those.

Just tried it and it works!
