I am using Civil3D 2012 and have a drawing that will not allow me to add Contour Labels. This is the first time I have had this problem. While searching for possible solutions the only thing I came across was this Knowledge Base post that describes my issue exactly but the solution does not fix the problem...
Unable to create contour labels
You were unable to create contour labels. When you tried to create a single contour label, you could not select any of the contour lines of a surface. When you tried to create multiple contour labels, the contour label line disappeared after you selected the second point.
You cannot create contour labels unless your model uses the UCS World coordinate system. To resolve this issue
You should now be able to create the contour labels successfully
I tried switching my UCS a few times, double checked all surface feature settings and label styles, tried it on different surfaces in the same drawing, restarting, auditing, I even tried switching visual styles to assure it was in 2D and no luck.
Any suggestions or has anyone else encountered this issue?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Your TIN Surface labels are set to be placed on the C-TOPO-TEXT layer, per the Object Layer tab under Drawing Settings. That layer is frozen. Thaw that layer and see all of the labels you've tried to add....now add any others you need.
