    Displaying street names

    Hello everybody- Does anyone know how to display all the street names on a zoomed in map?

    I know you can change the font size and that has an effect on some street names displaying/disapearing and I know as you zoom in, more street names will populate the map..........

    However I find that I cannot reach that happy medium to display all streets no matter what combination I try.

    Is there a function or a property that I am missing here(maybe a display all?)

    Thank you for your help,
    -Alex

    Hi,

    No, displaying of street names are automatic added / removed depending the zoom factor.

    Sorry there is not.

    I know Microsoft conducted a survey this year to try to get feedback on requested new features/capabilities, I'd imagine layer/labeling control would have been close to the top of the list!

    Thank you for the responses.

    One last question.......
    Does anyone have a suggestion for a work around, other than manually writing in the street names?

    Hi,

    You could try to make the font smaller, then the street names will already display at higher zoom level.

    Re: Displaying street names

    just trying to revisit this, now that we've all had a chance to work with MP2010.

    Anyone have any ideas or a workarounds to display all the street names at a relatively zoomed in view?

    Thank you and happy new year to all

    -Alex

    Check the map settings pane. There is an option for "More Detail" for the road labels.

    Also, have you seen this tool?
    Code to generate poster prints from mappoint

    Thank you Eric.
    I tried that and saw that "more detail" was already checked, in fact I couldn't check or uncheck it for some reason.

    I have taken a look at the poster print tool, and it is pretty cool, however for my application it is not feasible.

    I don't know how to add pictures onto these threads, otherwise I would include a map to show you where the names of the streets drop off. I'm pretty well zoomed in, I can't understand why it wouldn't display more street names.....

    Thank you for you help,
    -Alex

    I have the same question that Alexramo has about controlling the size of the text on the printout. On the monitor the street names look fine. However, when you print them out you can barely see them.
