Section view group labeling

I have multiple alignments. When I create a section view group I would like a label at the top or bottom that is the alignment name. I cant find this option and I'm certain it exists! Thanks.

Edit your section view style. Go to the Title tab, Click the button with the A and a pencil icon. The text editor appears. Add the Parent Alignment.

Thats what I currently do, but I consider it a work around. I want a title for the group of section views if possible. That method puts it on each section. It's better than nothing but I would prefer one group label. Thanks.

I am not sure if this works with section labels but it works with alignment labels.

 

hold the control key down and select the label. Go to properties. Set new style.

 

This is how to change the style of one label within a label group.

 

that way you can label the first section with the parent alignement name (and maybe the last) and leave the rest as just the station.

 

IF IT WORKS LIKE ALIGNMENT LABELS AND OTHERS DO

Ok I think you want a label with the alignment name to use as a title for sections? If this is correct use a Note Label and use the same Reference Text component in the note label...
