Label Expressions

65 Views, 5 Replies

I set up an surface slope label expression which took the absolute value of the slope, then used that expression in a slope label style. When I created the expression, I incorrectly formatted the result as double rather than percent. When I change the format of the expression from double to percent in my drawing, the labels display correctly; however, if I close and reopen the drawing, the expression defaults back to double format, and the labels do not display correctly (until setting the expression back to percent).

of course, this is before installing SP1 or any Hotfixes... not willing to install those until Parcel Labels have been fixed. Message was edited by: jfrazie2

In fact, it appears that another label expression that I created defaulted to "double" format after closing and reopening the drawing... and I am sure that I created the expression with the "percent" format initially. Message was edited by: jfrazie2

Have you tried removing the expression from the style and then adding it back in after the format was changed?

your label style. i leave everything double.
