Re: Label Objects on individual layers

10-09-2013 04:57 AM in reply to: troma

I response to Jeff M. 

 

The markers can be used separate of the Note Label, and vise versa.  I have note labels, that have no connection to a marker.  Example:  UNPLATTED LANDS.  We use this on surveys and the beauty is that if the label has to be moved, it has a leader attachment.  As for the markers, most of these have paired note labels.  Sometimes it may be necessary to have a marker without a label, legend driven symbology.  In this instance, it would be great to have the marker come in on its designated layer.

Yes, I know a NoteLabel can be added without a marker (almost all of my notes are added without them). When the Note does have a marker associated, they are linked together. How do you insert a marker by itself?

I wanted the notes and markers to come in on individual layers when they are separately inserted objects.  I understand that the inserted combination of the two yields a combined object. I guess that the combined object with have to be controlled through the drawing settings>object layers settings.  Is there any way to have the combined object insert on the layer of the note style?

 

Thanks

Yes, both the Note and Note/Marker combination labels can be set to the layer defined in the NoteLabelStyle. I'm still not understanding how you have the marker separately inserted.

Set the note label to <none>, then set the marker to some defined style.  Works both ways. You can insert a note or marker separately or both together throught the Add Labels dialog box.

I don't have a <none> setting. Is that a label style you made yourself?

With the availability of blocks and cogo points, I am struggling with the reasoning for inserting a marker without a label attached.

Thanks,

Yes.  Its probably a NO_DISPLAY Label Style that is called <none>

The marker can represent any block at any scale.  The survey dept. will use the markers for document drafting.  They are moving from LDD 2008 to C3D 2012, shortly.

OK, that makes more sense and is what I figured you might say. I can update the code to use the MarkerStyle's layer when the NoteLabelStyle is set to "<none>".
