Im using Civil 3D 2012.

 

I want to show the distance between Profile PVI's on a Surface Spot Elevation.

You can add profile data to alignment labels that show stations. Some finessing the style may get the desired results.

Thank you

I can add profile data to a spot elevation label without issue but i can't calculate the length between pvi's.

Yes. use a featureline with a label style the shows the end elevations and distance between. Set the FL style to NoShow or NoPlot

HTH. Sometimes it takes a fresh look, and pulling out that stubby phillips head screwdriver the hardly gets used. :smileywink:

I see you also got the grade in there, nice.

another way I have used is to create a FL from an alignmentent. and you can use alignment label styles to label pgl in plan
