dragged state for a line label

145 Views, 2 Replies

I have a line label style that I created for labeling bearing and distance. The Dragged State Component for display is set to "As Composed", because I want to just slide it down the line a bit, but have it remain at the same rotation as the line, and it is not allowing me to do so. I also have a label style set up for "Stacked Text" and that works fine when I move it away from its original line I labeled, there is no problem....any ideas?

Are you able to move the label at all and not getting expected result or it just won't move?

Is the Label Style>General Tab>Behavior>Object reference set to >Object?

There are a couple of options that you could have used when you created your style that control the placement of the label. If you set the "Anchor Point" to "Middle" then the label will always be at the midddle of the line. If you set the "Anchor Point" to "Label Location" then the label can be moved along the line. It sounds like you may have used the first option.

 

The "Drag State" is for when the label is moved off the line and not along the line (use the other anchor option for that).
