Is there a way to rotate individual point label features so they don't interfere with other point label features??

    If you edit a point feature with the Digitizer Tool you can edit the font for the point and specify a rotation and label placement to use.

    Mike,

    I did what you suggested and nothing changes. I used the Digitizer Tool and the go to edit point feature... then to font/point style... change the angle and click ok, but nothing happens... I go back in the same way and everything is as if I hadn't changed it at all. Not sure what to do here. I changed all of the angles for the entire .shp file in the control center... do I have to undo that and then do them each individually?

    Thanks!

    If you have setup the layer styling to use the same style for each point then whatever you change for an individual point won't matter. Those only apply if you check to 'Use the Default Style Based on Classification or Custom Style' option on the Point Styles tab for the layer.

    Let me know if I can be of further assistance.

    Thanks,
