Autodesk changes the right click menus all the time, it's not the drawing, it's in your CUI.

I want to see that block because it's AECpoint, that way I can find the command relates to it..

I opened your attached drawing with 2013 C3D but that point block wasn't there.

I'm not sure what you mean by point block. The points are in a point group...

Point block is a block brought in when it matches point description in field book or data file, point group is a group of identical points. That is how it defined back in land desk top.

Ask the civil 3D group, they know how to add that option to right click menu.

Oh ok cool. I'm going to have to look into that more because that would be super helpful for me!! CAD will take the points that you import and based on their descriptions sort them into different blocks? Very niffty!

 

But back to this issue, I just want to be able to flip the label from the left to the right. I always have 2 points in the same place and it used to be just a quick click to swap the label to the other side. I know I can make a label style on the opposite side but this way was much faster.

 

Just a selection from the right click menu...

If you can attach another drawing that created with C3D 2012 and has that block, I will find out what that comand is.

(Once it opened with 2013 and saved back to earlier version, all get messed up and difficult for me to find out)

I don't know how to do that... sorry.

 

I only ever worked with point groups.
