How to display the auto labels without the point symbols

In our current PC mapping software, the auto labels are saved on the same layer as the Features rather than on a non-spatial (Shape Only) layer. A customer labels areas over a raster images by using points that are auto-labeled with section numbers. He wants to know how to have the labels shown without also displaying the symbols for the points.

To display the auto labels, the points also need to be displayed. A solution for this situation is to delete one of the point symbols on the symbols page in the Point properties window. This “empty” symbol could then be used for the auto-labeling purpose and not show up in Map View.
