Re: Contour Labels

Hi Matt, Thanks for the reply. Your suggestion would probably work if I didn't want to display my major contours (every fifth) different then the minor contours. I suppose the command I'm trying to duplicate in Civil3D is the Terrain->Contour Labels->Group Interior. This command allows you to place labels on the contours at specified elevation intervals along a line.
