Is it possible to left justify and right justify multiple pieces of annoation in ArcMap?
I want it to look like stacked annotation, but it will be made of of individual pieces.
Thanks in advance!

Hi Seashine,

It's actually rather simple if you are familiar with the software and you treat annotation elements as objects. After you convert your Labels into Annotation and double-click the layout view to enter "Focus Mode," you can select annotation elements (hold shift to select multiple annotation objects) then right-click the objects and choose Align from the menu.

You can also change the alignment settings (left, center, or right justification) for each individual annotation element if it's stacked (right-click-->Properties)
