Vertical Curve labels -- flipping problems

1214 Views, 11 Replies

I am having a lot of problems with my vertical curve labels. I created a style that shows the length of the vertical curve, the k-value, the end and start elevations, and the elevation and station of the PVI, as shown. My problems are the fact that when I want to flip a label, they all flip (shown in the second picture). I also have noticed that there is only one drag point. Is this a setting that I unknowingly edited, or is it possible to flip labels individually?

Hold down the "CTRL" key then select just the label you want to change.

That works for my grade labels, but not for the vertical curve labes, unfortunately; they still flip all together. Thanks for the help, though!

So you want both flipped on one curve only, right?

 

When you use the "flip" it is only the labels but the anchor should do what you want.

 

Make sure to hold "CTRL" before selecting.

Thanks, that did help. It didn't occur to me to try moving the anchor point too.

Bruce,

 

We're in the process of some styles updates & one of the items I need to fix is the flip functionality in our VC Sag & Crest Pfl label styles. I came accross this video and the style used is doing exactly what we're trying to set up as far as the curve text flipping in same relationship to the dimension line along with the diamond grip flippig along with label. I can get everything except the relationship to the dim line is always above or below the original relationship to dim line. Ie: If curve text started above dim line when flipped it moves to below dim line.

Would it be possible to get a copy of the style used so i can compare & try to get our label flipping as your's does?

 

Assuming one or more of our anchors etc. within the stye is a little buggered up. I've looked at the "out of the box ones" and several others & none behave quite as nice as shown.....

 

Thanks in advance,

 

Jay

Sure, do you need 2012 or 2013?

I don't mind posting it, I used a lot of other templates to steal ideas from when setting up ours.
