Labeling Issue

I'm looking for help creating a station/offset label to look like the attached (Plan View.png).  I have created a label from station/offset that is close to what I need, but I need it to include the following:

 

1. How can I include a default snap mode (apparent intersection) into the label?

2. How can I include a prompt for an elevation difference from the centerline profile to top of curb, as the top of curb elevation changes with road width.

3. How do I set-up the label to align with the lot line if the lot line is not perpendicular to centerline, but still reads the perpendicluar station?

 

Also, I'm having difficulty getting the text to justify right/left as shown on the attached (Plan View.png).  I've attached my label properties for reference.

 

Appreciate your input.

Hi Tony,

 

Without programming I don't think it is possible to do that. All the settings that are available are in the style, but nothing related to what you are asking. My suggestion is to visit customization forum and post your question there. Hopefully somebody may give you more information.

1. you would need to program a lisp or .NET app to force OSMODE while using this label type, can be done. 2. Assuming you are using two surfaces, look into using Reference objects and expressions in the label. Basically the label would prompt you to select the two surfaces and the expression would do the math. you may need to use a General label instead of the station/offset type. 3. I'm guessing you cannot.

If you curb line is profiled you do it with an alignment label style to show vertical geo and add the ref text for sta off

Thanks Joe, that makes sense. I'll set up a style and give it a try.
