I am having layer control issues when dealing with Point Styles. I have a Description Key set up that will put the specified point style on a certain layer. For instance the point style COMH will be placed on the V-UTLY-MH layer upon insertion. The point style that I have created will have the Marker associated to the V-UTLY-MH-SYM layer and the Label associated with the V-UTLY-MH-LABEL layer. I also have the check box at the bottom of the Object Layers Tab in the Drawing Settings Dialog box checked that says "Immediate and independent layer on/off control of display components" checked. With all of this set up, I still cannot independently layer on /off the label of the point style without having to create a Point Group Style and have no label style selected within the Point Group Styles Properties. While I understand how to do this and can set up multiple Point Group Styles and push them up and down to get the visuals to do what I want, we have to deliver our drawings to clients who are not the most CIVIL 3D savvy of people. Does anyone know of a work around that does not involve duplicating and exploding the cogo points just so that clients can layer on/off or freeze/thaw the point lables in a drawing? I have included an image of the settings with the code used for the COMH point style and desription key settings.
In theory, turning off or freezing V-UTLY-MH-LABEL should turn of the label. But there is no point and click tool for that - the layer property dialog box is the only way.
overall point layer: V-UTLY-MH - freeze this and the point and label will turn off.
Point layer from point style:V-UTLY-MH-SYM - freeze or turn this off to turn off point symbol only
Point label layerfrom point style:V-UTLY-MH-LABEL - freeze or turn this off to turn off point label only
The point labe stylel can have a layer which in your case is <default> and as I understand it, since you did not use layer 0 in the point style for the label layer, the point label layer style is not used.
