Graticule Grid in Layout - Zero Padding In Labels

  • 170

  • Currently ArcMap graticule grid labels will display a single digit in minutes and seconds when they are less than 10. For example 27° 1' 35" or 120° 35' 5". It would look much nicer if the minutes and seconds could be (optionally) padded so that it labels as 27° 01' 35", 120° 35' 05" etc.

This is highly need one. some times these labes are not displaying even if the offset is more than half of its label size. Currently we are programatically modifying value after converting the grid labels to graphics.But  the label itself not displaying then what to do?

Yes, please! This is required for USGS publication standards (and the many standards that agree with it!) I understand this capability is available in Producting Mapping but this should be available in ArcGIS core.

For those of us using ArcMap for map production these types of details a crucial to the quality of the final product
