I have a pipe network that I am working on and in my parts list I have my Structure Label Style Created. But when I click on a structure that I have deleted the label previously and then right click and hoose "Add Label". The label that it adds to the structure is not the one I have set in my Network Properties Dialog. Can someone let me know how to correct this so when I choose a structure I have in my network and right click and choose "Add Label". The label style is what I want it to be and not some other style that is in my list of styles? I have placed a pic of my network properties to show my structure label style I have and what I want when I try to add a label to an existing structure in my network.
The issue is when I click on a structure and add label, it is a different style as shown below. And I don't want to have to change the style from the one it defaults to if I don't have to every single time.
Please guide me in the right direction to set my default label style when I add a label. Thanks.
Solved! Go to Solution.
The label being used by the Rt. Click Add Labels method is controlled by the Feature and or Command Settings for the "Pipe Network"
Settings Tab of Toolspace>Pipe Network>Rt. Click>Edit Feature Settings>Default Styles>Structure Plan Label Style or Structure Profile Label Style.
They can also be set in the "Command Settings".
Alternatively if you like to choose as you label things which Style is applied then use the Annotate Tab>Add Labels>Pipe Network>"Add Pipe Network Labels"
(top selection) then you can decide which ones are to be applied without going into the Settings all the time if utility type changes etc.
IIRC the default styles in the individual Pipe Network properties are only used when creating new objects. Otherwise the labeling style gets it's default setting from the General Pipe Network settings, which can be overridden for each of the Command settings for adding labels.
Thanks a million. Got it working just as needed. I just took a week course on C3D and that one slipped through the cracks. The course book is like 3 inches thick. So its a bit difficult to absorb everything until you actually start using it. Thanks Again!
Thanks Jeff! great information that I can apply across the board for styles and the way I want them to appear. Much Appreciated!!!
