    Editing Balloons in MapPoint

    I work for a real estate firm, and many times I need to plot several buildings that are in close proximity. Since the maps are for market surveys for clients, I also need to show the building name and address next to each pushpin. My question is: How do you keep the pushpin balloons from overlapping? Is there any way? I've tried right-clicking and changing the orientation, but it only gives you four options, and there's no way to click and drag the balloons; you can only move them by changing the orientation.

    Editing Balloons in MapPoint

    yes, I have the same question. We have several offices close together and want to show a high level picture of all the offices, but if I show all the balloons, they hide the rest of the offices.

    perhaps your best route might be to export those points to an excel spread sheet and present that as tabular data along with the map? I have seen this question before and I don't believe a solution was ever found.
