This is strange. I wanted to label just the alignment name in a couple of places. I have an Alignment Name Label Style that does this. I now notice that it will capitalize some of the lower case P's in the curve label. Not the line label just the curve. They're applying the same style. It also changes back to lower case if I drag the label.
The style has one component and that is the Alignment Name and has Preserve Case set.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Solved! by AllenJessup. See the answer in context.
I sent this in as an SR. Autodesk can duplicate it. Since there is no immediate fix they have closed the case but have passed it on to development. So I guess I wont be using lower case in Alignment names. Wouldn't for final documents anyway.
Your right. Lower case P. It's also doing it with lower case J's,G's and Q's.
This only happens on arcs. The Label style isn't very complicated. I've tried changing the anchor point and attachment and that doesn't have any affect.
The curve text function is shifting everything to fit. I think this shifting would be less noticable with all caps. I would start a support case.

Yeah. That's one reason I haven't notice it until now. Our convention is for all caps. Except I like to see the month in dates ad upper and lower. I've recently instituted that the iterations on a project should be in date format rather than Rev 1, Rev 2, Rev 3, etc. When things get complicate I feel an actual date helps.
I just went though this with one of our surveyors who doesn't like to make point groups for each days field work. What a PITA to decipher all the points in a multii-day job without a date and numbers that won't help either...
We always have a point group for each day. Maybe he was working with a Survey Database and didn't know the trick of adding those points to a single point group.
No he knows how to do it. I think it is the old, 'my cad standards are better' or, 'they don't need this" routine.
