If a space is the same width as a letter (may depend on the font you're using) then it should be simple.
Text component: " ." that is a space, then dot.
Anchor bottom left of this component to the bottom left of the main label component.
Then add another dot, and play with the number of spaces between them.
But if N and S are different widths you're in trouble. W is a difficult letter, generally wider than others, so you may be better off with a second dot componant anchored to the bottom right of the main label, rather than having both dots in one component.
Credit where credit is due! Give kudos or accept as solution whenever you can.
I tried what you suggested and it works great when you line is drawn left to right but when you rotate the line right to left the period does not move with the first letter
Brian gave me a clue. I created a text component having just a period in it, anchored it to the Bearing and messed around with the offsets until it fell in the right place. I suppose to get the second one you could create another text component or figure out how many spaces to put between the two periods.
Brian may have an even better way.
Basically the same, I just created a letter that I attached middle left to middle left and then attached the period middle right to middle left. Then set the visibility of the letter to false.
As for the period at the end, just add it to the bearing label. http://screencast.com/t/rq4E6RjLznbF

Duh!!! That's what happens when trying to do styles while plotting a 66 acre deed. Only a 52' missclosure. So all is well.
