General Note - Plot Style of Leader

217 Views, 4 Replies

We use STB plot style tables for all of our drawings.  I have several general note styles setup in Civil 3D 2012.  When you pull the note text out so that you have a leader, the leader does not plot per the plot style assigned to the layer that the note is set to display on on the General tab.  It appears as the proper color and freezes with the layer properly, but it plots with the settings of the plot style assigned to layer 0.  Is there a reason that the leaders don't use the plot style setting form the layer it is displayed on????

Did you check the leader settings, under the dragged state tab

Yes, I did.  Everything on that tab is set to BYLAER.  There is no setting for PlotStyle anywhere in the note sytle settings.

Do you see the same issue if you plot to some other plotter? Does it show correctly on plot preview? How about other drawings-do they plot OK with that STB file. 

In Plot dialog, is "Plot with Plot Styles" checked?

Yes, I see the same issue regardless which plotter I use.

 

No, it does not show correctly in the plot preview.

 

Yes, "Plot with Plot Styles" is checked in the plot dialogue.
