I have been attempting to get my trees looking like this
So from my reading I set my des. key up like this
However this produces one single line of text with the description "span 0 dia. 0.0 Ht. 0" I want them on 3 separate lines, like the above picture.
So I set up a label style
With this component
So does anyone know how I get the parameters $1 $2 $3 to go in the correct label component?
Solved! Go to Solution.
I don't think you can do what you want to do through description keys. I might be wrong, and it certainly is an interesting challenge. You can do this with User Defined Properties, but it will involve either manually entering in the information point by point, or using the Survey Database.
Look on AU for CV201-5 "Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Points, But Were Afraid to Ask".
This is a very good document for description keys. The only easy way I know of is to target the Full description and change the maximum width in the labels style otherwise you will need to enter a user defigned property classification.
I would go with the Maximum width and add some spaces between the $# in the description format until you get the desired look.
That sounds interesting, but I can't find it. Can you post a link?
What a shame, it appears anything prior to 2011 has been Archived or removed. What a wealth of knowledge removed.
Maybe Matt Kolberg can help as he chaired the event.
Matt, if you can dig that up, it will be greatly appreciated.
Nosing around, I found Tom Pisani's Webinar, C13081: Pointing out AutoCAD Civil 3D Points. Good, solid information, and in about 36 minutes is a neat idea I didn't know about. Notes--you can tie them to things like points and alignments, and add supplemental information. Might have some application here.
Here is the document Mike was speaking of.
Excellent! Thanks, Matt!
Coffee is on and I'm going to read.
