MULTIPLE PARCEL STYLES TO ONE PARCEL

287 Views, 7 Replies

Hey is it possible to apply multiple parcel styles on one parcel.

I ask this beacause I have my parcels xref'd into other dwg files.

However i need the parcel number and area in some files.

Whereas in others I need the parcel number only.

But because they are both in one style there is no turning off one or the other.

 

I hope I have not confused anyone.

Thanks in advance for all the help. It is greatly appreciated.

How about controlling the visibility of your information with layers? That way you wouldn't need more than one style.

you can lable parcels through an xref. a method a I saw on a AU video showed the parcel label in the base file on a no plt layer, and then the sheet file labled using its own style
Thank you

Hey thanks for yall input

-Mr. Dave believe you me I tried that layers thing but i am using one Parcel area label style with two components (parcel area and parcel number).

 So its all on one layer there is no way I saw to separate them on different labels

 

-Mr. Bouza I tried labeling the parcels in the file it was xref'd  into. I was only able to get things such as bearings and distances but I'm still unable to  do nothing with the areas or lot numbers.

 

I am not sure if I have missed something which either of you guys meant.

Go easy on me I am no where near being as accomplished as you guys with Civil 3d

i get it now i did not use autocad sheet set for this particular project. it was not giving me me the layouts the way i required. thanks alot for the help though i would try that later on this afternoon

 

Let me tap some more on your knowledge a bit more

This is way off topic of what I previously asked but 

lets say i created cross-sections along a road 400m long at every 10m.

However now I would like for other purposes to plot them in groups of 50m.

But I still want both sets, every 10m and every 50m in the same dwg file without duplicating sample lines.

Ash254,

You're right. The Parcel Style won't separate each line of information into different layers. I thought it might but I was wrong.

Joe's solution looks good. I'm going to try it. The only other possibility I can think of is a General Label Style for each line. I'm not sure how to link it to the Parcel Label.

Ash, I do as Joe described. In the drawing contains the parcel xref, choose add parcel area labels and select the area label in the xref. Even works by window/crossing selection to get many at once.

For your sections question, I suggest starting a new thread to ask this. Otherwise someone who might know the answer to that, but not the label question, may never even see the question.
