Pipe Crossing Label style

I wanted to adjust the style so the line starts at the invert so I thought no problem I'll write an expression. I wrote

-1*({Pipe Inner Diameter or Width}/2) int the hopes I could use it in the y offset parameter but the expression doesn't show up in the pop down. Infact I have another expression for flow, and if I add several more expressions to my list when I go to the pop down only Flow shows. Is this a 2013 thing?



Thank you

It may be a 2013 thing (or more likely every version previous to 2014). I tested in 2014 and expressions are available in the drop down for the offset. You could try adding a no plot line, and try playing with the anchor options, then anchor your label to the line.

They are all formatted as Double values, Joe? And they are all expressions created for Pipe Plan Profile labels?


In 2013 I have 5 expressions and all are available to me. This one works works in a 20 scale drawing with Vert. scale of 5


-1*(({Pipe Inner Diameter or Width}/2.0)/{Drawing Scale Conversion})*4
