Civil 3D 2013 - Point marker with attributed block

678 Views, 4 Replies

How do you get a point marker that uses a block with attributes to show the attributed text?

We are using tree symbols that have the size of the tree as an attribute, but when the points that use that block come in...the block shows up w/out any attributed text. Tried to edit the "block" or point marker with attedit command, but C3D tells me it is not a block. Understand that it is a "marker" for the point. But, what is stopping the text size of tree from showing up?

Any help greatly appreciated.

attributes don't work thru point markers.   use the point label style to show this text information.

I see the options under the component name (Text, Line, Block). But, I do NOT see any options for attributes. Where does one find the options to add attributes to the label style for the point.

One solution a co-worker had was to explode the points. They've been causing some issues besides this one...

Thanks

Don't use attributes.  Use the label to show the size of the tree.

Basically, you point description becomes an attribute. Actually the attribute has grown up to the point description?!
