Disappearing or moving section labels

255 Views, 2 Replies

I have a section view base map that has labeling at the grade breaks of a corridor section. (see correct labels image)

I made a minor change to the alignment the corridor is using and when I opened my section base, most of the section view labels were messed up. (see messed up labels image)

Some views were missing labels and in others, they were grouped together in a lump.

The settings I am using are in the third image. If I checked either the start or end offset box, then unchecked it and closed the dialog, the labels would fix themselves.

Any ideas on what caused this?

For reference, there are about 300 section views in this base drawing.

 

Thanks.

Hi Mike,

 

I am not sure which version of the file you are working on which version of Civil 3D, however you may want to refer to the following blog if applies to your case: http://beingcivil.typepad.com/my_weblog/2010/06/my-section-views-have-moved.html?cid=6a010535cf32f99...

Figured it out yesterday. All of my corridors were pasted together into one surface in another drawing and I forgot to rebuild that finished surface. After rebuilding, corridor labels updated perfectly.
