Parcel Name Template

548 Views, 6 Replies

How can I set my text style and height for the parcel name template on a parcel? I get all the other text set with the correct styles and settings, but the parcel name template is escaping me. I want it to have a complex font and be larger than my Square Feet and Acres for the parcel label. For whatever reason - my Parcel Name (simply a number)

See attached pdf files for a look.

 

Thanks in advance for any input.

You need to add a new component within the Label Style Composer.  If the label is all on one component you can only have it be one size.  Add a component for the lot number, select the font and size for that component, and you should be good.  You will have to fiddle with Anchor points to get it to align properly.

I will check that out and see how things work.

Figured it was something like that, but why do they give us a name template if we can't control the settings in the "template". Makes little sense...

Nope - that was NOT the fix that I needed. The name template is still being used and now I have two lot numbers. Sounded good and made sense, but how does one get rid of the lot number that comes in from the area label when you are showing the sq ft and acres. The Lot Number is somehow connected/linked to the sq ft label. If you make that state not visible then both are gone. I need them all and would like to have one label "style" for area label do it all.

Anybody else...?

Thanks in advance for any input.

Remove the Number portion from the part you want smaller (the existing Text component). Add the second Text Component and add the Number only to that. Adjust the attachment points to suit. In the Text Component Properties window for the one with just the number, click the sideways tab to change to the Format tab. Change the Font, Color and Bold properties here which will affect just this component.

 

This will be the result: (mine uses 3 components, only 2 are really needed...I added the 3rd to make it look like yours)

The name template controls just that, what is the parcel named. The label style controls the label, i.e. I want to label the parcel with the parcel name (that was created via the naming template) and I want the name to be this size, this font, etc for this particular label. I also need to label the parcel in a different drawing using a different font, size, etc so I use a different label style, but the name is the same.

Ive created a style where the parcel number is larger than the area label. The way I did it was create a label style for just the parcel number setting the text height to what you want. Then create a child of that label and add the area labels this gives you the ability to have area labels with smaller text.
