Paralell Automatic Labels

368 Views, 7 Replies
03-28-2008 10:02 AM
Hey everyone,

As you see in the picture I have a subdivision that follows a curving road, and therefore all the lot lines also follow the road. This is unfortunate, as I have been creating label styles 1 by 1 for left, center, right, for every angle of line. Is there a way to get your label to go parallel with the line automatically?

What I am thinking of is with structures, there is that circular grip that rotates the structure, is there something similar to this with labels? or must i keep grinding away making the labels one by one in their separate degree intervals.

Right now I have 33 label styles.... and I am not even 1/4 of the way done.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you

Since there is no image I'm going to take a stav at it. I assume you're
talking about the distacen / bearing labels for parcel segment? Thos can
most certainly automatically line up with the parcel segment it's labeling.
In the General tab of the label style dialog you'll need to set the
orientation to Object. I hope you didn't spend too much time cerating those
33 styles.

Ok I see what's going on. Those are spot elevations. I can think of two
things, two of which require 2009 unfortunately.
1. add points with labels styles that look like that. you will be able to
rotate them easily with the new rotation grip. you can do this with 2008,
but without the grip.
2. line label styles in 2009 have an optino to snap the label to the end of
the feature line segment AND have it label the elevation of that end point.
3. this one does NOT require 2009. add feature line labels with the
elevation (they will be added to the center of the line) and then just drag
them to the end points.

Hi, I apologize for bringing this topic up again, I'm using the 2013 CIVIL 3D version and I'm having the exact same issue as the poster of this thread. I've looked all around but cannot seem to find many topics relating to this. 

 

Is there a thread that you may know of that might have instructions of how to spot label elevations that are parallel to the lot lines?

Hi Sindarin

 

John Mayo posted some line label styles that should be of great interest to you HERE

How nice it would be if we could reference GIS attributes and C3D object data in fields. It would make available all the Annotation scale capabilities of Autocad and in other ways simplify the whole annotation workflow.
