    Can't remove state names or territory name labels

    Hi.

    I have a data map set up in MapPoint 2010 for which I'm unable to "turn off" the state name labels. I've also created a number of territories, the names for which I would NOT like to appear on the map, only the in the legend.

    Am I SOL here? Thanks for your time and consideration!

    Hi nicheplayer,

    In regard to state names, they will remove.
    Territory names are not removable.

    nicheplayer,

    Ctrl+Shift+M or view the map settings pane.
    Uncheck labels on states.
    If this isn't working, please send your map to me.

    Turns out I had to quit MapPoint and restart before my changes took place. Haven't seen that behavior in a while. But the state labels are, in fact, gone now. Thanks for your replies!
