How to rotate point labels on an elevation (facade) drawing?

Is it possible to rotate the point labels when working with point files from an elevation Survey in Ciivil 3D? When activating the labels visibility they are horizontal, but when I rotate the drawing  to a side view I am can´t see them.

 

So far I was working with Autocad (importing a dxf). Is there a way to rotate at the same time all the points labels, wich in this case are just text items?

 

Thank you

 

It's under the General tab in the point style.

set your point lables to rotate to view instead of object?

 I didnt know I could do that. I guess it is on the menu where you activate and deactivate the labels visibility, isnt it?

 

Thank you!!! It will be so helpful

If I remember correctly (don't have C3D on this computer) the default point styles that ship with C3D have the label component visibility toggled off in the model view.

 

Double click a point style (not label style) in your settings tab and go to the dsiplay tab. Select the pulldown near that top and change the view to model. Is the label component toggled on or off?
