Alignment station justification

I have a novice problem that one of you older pros have a solution. There should be a simple solution but I can't seem to find it.


How do you change the station justification on an alignment? My stations are centered on the alignment and I want to move them perpendicular to the centerline and offset them to the left of the alignment. I pick the stations and get the label group ribbon but I can't seem to find the justification commands on the ribbon or under the properties dialog box. I do have them perpendicular to the alignment. I found that command.

Not sure exactly what your after but there is an X / Y offset value that may help to offset/justify the text in relation to the alignment & tic marks.

These are found on the "Layout Tab" in your alignment label style.


If it's the actual text you wish to justify then go to same Layout Tab>Text>Contents>Radio button>Text Component Editor>Format Tab>

highlight contents in view on right and choose the Right Arrow to push the new info to the viewer>OK
