  • Labeling by feature order (Index in Layer)

    I'm using Global Mapper v14.2 (yes, I know, it's very old).

    I have a series of line features that I've ordered by selecting, cutting, and pasting them back to the original layer. This allow me to set the order in the layer so that when I export the SHP file, the associated DBF file has those features in order. (the last cut/paste becomes the last record in my DBF file.

    I've noticed using Search (binoculars) tool in GM, that there is an attribute at the far right of the table that gives <Index in Layer>, showing the order I created.

    Is it possible to use this attribute within GM for labeling, rather than modifying the DBF file and adding that attribute, then reloading the SHP or GMW file? Index doesn't appear as an attribute option in the pulldown menu in labeling options, and I'm not sure if can make it one within GM.
