MapInfo Pro: Is there a way to preserve custom labels anchor position and text in a workspace after packing a table

UPDATED: March 27, 2017


If you pack a table that has custom labels, chances are they will be wrong after the pack.
There is no way at this time to prevent that or somehow ‘fix up’ the custom labels after a pack.

Possible workaround:
If the user is willing to use the GeoPackage data format, then there is a way to preserve labels even if data is edited. 
This is because in the Geopackage format, the RowID, which is simply the number of records in the data set, is stable and do not change when you pack a table.
