Point label style

Alright I have a problem here. I'm using AutotCAD Civil 3D 2012 in the Civil 3D workspace, trying to create a point label style to show what I need it to show. I click on a point and select it's properties. Once on the properties tab I go down to the point label style box and clicked on the down arrow. A list of options then comes up and I selected the create/edit option. A small point label style box then appears and i choose the button directly next to the drop-down list and the label style composer box pops up. In this box I go to the layout tab and then go down to the contents box. I select the browse button next to the contents to select the contents. I select the contents I want but when I apply it every point has those contents and I need just that one point to have those contents. does anyone know what I could do to fix this problem?

Same as a textstyle, if you have 100 text-objects and you change the font within the textstyle ==> all 100 text-objects will be represented with the other font.

So you have to create a new pointstyle and assign it to that point, or better you create a new point-group, assign this point to the other point-group and also assign the new pointstyle to this point-group.

Can we make this any more difficult, all we want is to label a line!

When I label a line using a style I created, sometimes the bearing is first and sometimes the distance is first.

Is there a tutorial for this somewhere?
