I am not new new to AI but -- I'm new enough.
I'd really like to be able to help the text labels in many of my ArcMap made maps...problem is: many of them have aerials behind them that make for some confusion in rasterizing.
Is there any way (without rubbernecking the aerial back in) to help this map layout (specifically the text). I don't need step - by - step instructions...but a general workflow would be really helpful if someone could point me to it...I'm sadly lost and confused when it comes to clipping masks and vector text work (but I've been trying really hard to get some ideas flowing -- like I know not to put a stroke and to use different fill colors for different label types).
Thank you so much!! Every bit of feedback helps!
