maybe someone can help me. if anyone has a style or know how to set-up a style what i want to do is label the station and offset of the insertion point of a block by selecting that block and placing the name of the block at the end of the label. as such it would read sta: 14+58.25 - L12.50' P Pole

 

thank you

The best solution I could come up with off the top of my head is that if that "P Pole" originated from a point, you could create a reference text component of the Station/Offset label that pulls the cogo point name. This could easily accomplish what you are describing, however you need the point to be in that location.

Adding the Seth's suggestion: if you do not have the points you can extract the block info to csv then import as a point file, and you'll have it.

Thank you
