Labels not next to markers.

I seem to have a random, we'll say error for lack of a better term. I have a set of Point Styles with a Description Key set up for our survey points. When I import the points from a csv, I have 9 points that do not come in with the labels in the right spot. The label is supposed to sit next to the point style (see included image) Instead they sit 1 unit away. If you look at the included image you will see a point called COMH that is inserted correctly. Right above it is a point called WTMH that has the label coming in far to the right of the point style. Both the COMH and the WTMH have the same settings in the description key, and other than the block for the point, the same settings in the Point Style. I have completey re-written the description key, as well as re-created all the point styles, but this keeps happening. I have even re-created the block drawing and redefined the block in the dwt as well as an existing drawing. Is there something I am missing? Does anyone have a fix for this?

 

Thanks,

Chris M. Davis

 

P.S. I have added an image of the description key coding as well as the point style for the COMH andthe WTMH.

What are the label style settings? It would be far easier to troubleshoot if you could post a small dwg file with a few of these points inserted.

Actually I figured it out. Apparently my block drawings have "invisible" entities in them that get erased when I select all and remove the visible objects. Well at least I am really well versed at Description Key and Point Style creation. LOL

 

Thank you though.

That was going to be the first thing I looked for, but trying to describe it sometimes confuses people.Glad you figured it out!
