I would like my contour labels to be on layers other than the default C-TOPO-TEXT layer.
In the appropriate "Command" settings under "Surface" on the Settings tab, I assigned styles I created (with specific layers for the major and minor contour labels) to the contour labelling defaults. When I add labels to the contours, however, they are still on the C-TOPO-TEXT layer. How do I get them to be on the layers I created.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Layers for labeling are handled in a two-tiered system. The layer you set in Drawing Settings, Object Layers tab, controls all TIN labels. If you freeze this, all TIN Surface labels will freeze.
Individual label styles also can have their own layer settings. If you leave the master layer thawed and on, you can freeze/off individual styles based on their layer.
Example: Master TIN Surface label layer is C-TOPO-TEXT. For contour labels, I use C-TOPO-CONT-LABL. For spot shots I use C-TOPO-SPOT-LABL. Freezing C-TOPO-TEXT freezes contour and spot labels. Freezing C-TOPO-CONT-LABL only freeze contour labels.
