Performing a Mapcheck on a Cul-De-Sac Lot

Have you ever tried to perform a mapcheck on a lot in a cul-de-sac?  Did you notice that you cannot do the curve around the cul-de-sac? I noticed it.  With a little help from a customer of mine, Stephen Matovich, R.P.L.S., we were able to figure out how to do this.  It is actually the label style that controls this.  I have made it easier on you by providing a video below.  The video will show you how it performs by default, and then how to get it to work the correct way.  Enjoy…
