I'm not sure if this is exactly what you want, but it is possible to add reference text to a profile view label showing a station and offset from another alignment.

Use a StationOffset label style set to not display the leader in dragged state. Add the label in plan and drag it into the profileview to the proper location.

 In this example I've inserted a profile view label for the Road A alignment.  I then edited that style to add a piece of Reference text for the other alignment.  The new piece of text currently displays as ???

When the label is selected the Properties dialog displays the object that the Reference Text is referring to.  Clicking on the field currently showing <none> should bring up an option on the command line to pick the other alignment.

I really appreciate for your effort Mr.Steve,

But one more thing, Actually i have many interchanges so do you have any idea if there is available way to superimpose locations of phisical nozes from layout plan to profile view with label that display tha name and offset of adjacent alignments.

My idea is to superimpose cogo point in the profile view but i can't figure out if there is a way to display adjacent alignment name and offset of the label for cogo points.

I think it can be done by expressions but i don't know how can i do that.

 

Thank you in advance.

Mr.Steve

I tried to open an expression for the label of cogo point but there was no way to add alignment name to the label of cogo point.

 

For your advice Mr.Steve.

 

Thank you.

I think i figure out how to do that Mr.Steve.

Actually i draw a point at my phisical nozes locations and superimpose these points in profile view with label that display the names and offset of adjacent alignments.

 

Thank you Mr.Steve for your efforts.
