I am a pretty new user and still figuring things out. I have a simple map that I added local trails to and Checkpoints for an upcomming community poker run. Some of the labels show up on my printed map, and some do not. Example: Poverty Creek Trail shows a label, but Indian Pipe Trail does not. Can anyone help me get all labels to print?

    Can you send a link to a PDF you've generated.

    It's hard to say for sure without seeing that, but the PDF generator attempts to place labels along lines, with limits to how sharply each word can bend from one letter to the next - if the angle between characters is too great, the word becomes effectively un-readable. For the lines that aren't printing, you probably need to either zoom in (so the line takes up more of the page), or reduce the length of the label.

    That looks like what I describe. If you zoom in (https://caltopo.com/p/103N) so that the lines are longer/straighter, the indian pipe trail is labeled.
