Is there a way to make ArcGIS spell -meter like a Canadian? For example, inserting scale text pops out -meter, but I'd like to see -metre and sometimes -mètre. I know that I can subsequently convert these to graphics and edit the text from there, but is there any way to skip this step entirely by changing language or spelling settings within the program? Altering my XP language/international settings didn't do anything. Thanks in advance!

Heh. Just figured it out. I have no idea why I never noticed the obvious Label box in the Scale Properties palette before. Never mind!

Sorry you wasted your question for the week, but always nice to be able to identify another GIS geek.
