How and where can I adjust the station precision of the view frame start and end station. I am choosing snap to nearest foot station but I am getting 1+00.00. I would like 1+00 in the label. I am setting to start end to the layout name and mapping that to the current drawing field in SSM and do not have precision control there either.
Can this be done?
From your post I think you are asking about changing the precision of the View Frame Label. On the settings tab of the toolspace navigate to the View Frame Labels. Then you will need to edit the label and change the precision to round to the nearest foot.
If I am mistaken about your question please clarify and I will do my best to answer.
I'll look again on Monday - I don't recall seeing anything for that. Its in the name template not a lable style. I'll chack and let you know
here is the deal: I can set the precision to 1 foot in the vfames label style but cannot find the setting foe the precision the goes to the layout name. I adjusted the command settings but the layouts still have 2 decimal places, and layout name does not offer the vframe label as an option.
It's a know issue. I have it logged with ADSK as: [CaseNo:05736270.]
One "workaround" they came up with was to set the precision here:
Drawing Settings > Ambient Settings > Station
The problem is then when you cut sheets EVERY drawing gets the precision set to 0 for ALL the station setting, which was more of a mess for us.
Unfortunately at this time it seems that I've exhausted the possibilities by which you can affect the naming convention for sheet sets when using the station value fields. I'm sorry for the inconvenience this is causing.
If you like, you can submit a feature request at the following page for the development team to review for possible inclusion into future releases of Civil 3D
I'll follow up with that. I thought I was going crazy for minute
I found the work around
Go to Settings - Match Line - Lable Style - Match Line Left(remember you need to do for both left and right) - double click on Basic or right click and select new for a new style - On the The Label Style Composer, go to Text area and under content double click the ... that is the match line . At the Text Component Editor Content, Double click the AT STATION at the preview area then change the precision to 1 then click the upper arrow to Update. Remember you do the same to the Match Line Right too
I am having exactly the same trouble here in terms of setting the station precision to required decimal of 3 (eg km1.567 instead it gives me km1.567126). with the default setting of 6 decimal place.
Has anyone figured out on how to set this.
Thanx in advance.
