    Balloon Sizing and ZOrder

    I'm sure this has been posted before, but it would be really nice to be able to control the width, height, and zorder of pushpin balloons.

    I wish it would at least "autosize" it's width when you have short text in the notes.

    If it's just too hard to do for Microsoft's developers, maybe they could offer more than one balloon format to choose from? Like a narrow/regular/wide balloon property or something.

    Overprinted balloons...

    I second the call for more control over the balloons. The overprints from balloon labels make the map look very unprofessional and unreadable. I can't scale change, or use an inset without cluttering the subject matter.
    I would wish for more control over the balloons, rather than "autosize." I think MS tries to "automate" way too much in their programming. Give the user control. The lack of control over balloon orientation is "illogical". (You can control the orientation when alot of information/fields are shown in the baloon, but when you limit the information to just "show name" you lose functionality over the orientation? Why?)
    Does anyone have a workaround for this?
    I downloaded the very handy pushpin tool, but it does not address this specific problem.
