Changing how dip angles are displayed


I am displaying strike and dips on a geologic map, with the dip angle being shown. However, The dip angles displayed aren't centered with their corresponding symbol. Is there a way to fix where the dip number is displayed on the map?

Also I've been trying to change the size of the text for the dip angles but have been unable, so any advice with this would be appreciated as well.

    You can try this:
    • Using the Digitizer, select your strike and dip point (or points)
    • Right-click and choose Edit Selected Features. Modify Selected Point Features window will be displayed.
    • Under Feature Style, click the Name Font/Pos button. The Font window will be displayed.
    • Choose a font size
    • Next to "Label Position Relative to Point Feature", choose the location where you want the dip label.
    • Click OK.
