labels along alignment and profile
« on: October 28, 2010, 03:05:18 PM »
Ok, I am getting started on creating styles for the office. I am having a problem getting started on creating a label as in the attached pdf. I want to be able to pick a point along an alignment, like at the beginning of the riprap pad. I want the label to have the line like I have in the attached with STA, Elevation, and the option to enter the additional text like "begin riprap pad.

Can anyone help me get started.

Alignment Labels

Station and Offset


Create NEW

go to label style composer



Add a LINE Component

the Begin End feature text could also be defined as a(n)  EXPRESSION and have that added to the label

Depends on the rotation and the anchor conditions you set for that line...in the style

ok, I get the line in, but it anchors to the text. I can't figure out how to anchor it to the Anchor Station, as in the geometry point label style "perpindicular with tick".

Should I be starting with perpindicular with tick?

No you should start with either GENRAL NOTE style that references the alignment

or Station and Offset Label as stated in first response..

Actually If I understand what you are after...a General Note style set up for this is probably going to prodce the best result easiest.

the WHITE one is a General Note

the Red one an alignment Station/Offset

Yes, I am using 2010.

C3D_User. that is almost exactly what I want. I just want the text line to touch the alignment. Which I think I can fix.

Now, I created a General Note style for my profiles, but my station and elevation have ???. See attached pdf for style in use. I have attached a dwt with the style I created. It is in general / label styles / KRW_Sta Text field Elevation.

I must give credit to C3D_User for most of the attached dwt

What did I do wrong?

you lost the connection to; or did not select the REFERENCE alignment/profile that the note is using....

I think you can reset that in properties...

it may also be a persistent issue with reference text in labels.....

Seeing how this label will be employed....

a more reliable method might involve some 'trickery'

I would insert a fictional PVI into the design profile....and then add a SPECIAL * Geometry Point Label * to it.
Same for the Hoizontal alignment.
