Projecting Civil 3d COGO Points to Profile - Style

760 Views, 3 Replies

I have projected Civil 3D COGO Points projected to a profile.  I simply want to display the Civil 3D Point Number for each point in the profile. 

 

In the Profile Projection Label Style, the only field in the text editor that displays this point number is the "Source Object Name.  This shows up as "CogoPoint 124" for point 124 (see attached).  How do I make this simply say the point number ONLY, i.e. "124"?

 

It would be nice to program the label style to display this field, yet delete the first 10 characters of "CogoPoint x", so it only says the point number, "x"

Edit the contents of the profile label style, located under the Layout Tab within the Style Editor.

The only way I'm seeing to do this is to place the point number in the point description and use the description property in the label.

That is what I am beginning to think.  It is odd that the profile projection label style doesn't let you tailor the field, or at least provide the point number when it allows you to provide the point description.  Thanks for the responses.
