I am trying to create surface elevation labels along a polyline and I am having an issue with the label anchor point. I have created a line label style that uses a reference text to produce the elevation from a specified surface, however when I insert the label the default anchor point for the label is in the center of the line segment and that is where the reference text is taking the surface elevation. I am looking for the elevation of the surface at the start of each line segment, and I do not know how I can make it stop defaulting to the center of the line segment.
Attached is an overview of what my labels look like, where the anchor point is, and the layout properties within my label style.
Thanks for any help with this, I am using C3D 2012.
Sorry for the mistake, I took a capture of the wrong component. Attached is the updated capture showing my Reference Text settings.
can you post the style?
Using the "Add Multiple" option when labling linework, there is no way to change where the label is attached to the line. If you have only a handfull, you could probably use the add single option. Using this option wherever you select the line to lable it, that's where the label is placed on the line.
You need to add a block to the label. Attach that to the feature and then attach the ref txt to the block. Here is one that you can slide up and down the line and get the elv at that point and one for start and one for end. Curve lbls also in there. You may fine it faster to assign elevation to the fline and use those elv's in the label forgoing the whole ref' txt and possibly losing the surface link. Exampleas attached. Green FLine lbls use fline elv's. Magenta line has ref txt lbls.
That label works great but unfortunately, it labels the elevations of the lines. I believe the OP wants label the elevation of the surface using reference text and not the elevation of the line. As far as I know, the surface reference text will only get the elevation of the surface at the label location and you can't tell it to get the surface elevation at the beginning or end.
The labels on the magenta line are ref txt surf elev's. Sorry I forgot to mention that you need to slide the grip at the center of the to the end or start point as required.
I suggested assigning elev's from the surface to the line to save time and gave examples of each label type required.
