Re: C3D 2013: How to create 2 "triangle" Parcels from 4 Points of a sq

You could add that information into the descriptions for the parcels, then include the Description property to the label style. (If you need help wth adding to the style, please follow Bill's advice and do some of the tutorials so you have a grasp of working with the styles.) Or, select a label,right-click and choose Edit Label text. Then you can add it directly to each label. I would use the first option.

Hi Jeff, Thanks for your nice response.

I managed to understand the first option (including my "concentrations" in the Description property) you suggested - I worked on (i) the Settings =>Label Styles=>Area=>Parcel Name, and then (ii) the Prospector => Site => Site 1 => Parcels => Property : 1 for adding 333.5 mg/Kg Arsenic. I got the desired result - see the attached "Paint" file. One question to ask you: I want to the Name from "1" to "Lot 1" in the Label Style.  How can I change it? I have my DWG file attached in this thread for you to use for changing the Name from "1" to "Lot 1" in my project.  Please kindly help, advise and respond again.  

Many Thanks again,

Scott Chang

The Parcel Style has an option for the Naming convention to use:

Edit the Parcel name template to include the word LOT.

Hi Jeff,

I can't insert the "LOT" in the Parcel name template - see the new attached "Paint" file.  Please help and advise again.

Hi Jeff, 

After a struggle in finding the right place to click and then insert "Lot #1", I got it - see the attached "point" file for the Name "Lot #1".
