Profile Label - Dragged State - PVI

Has anyone been able to choose a block as an option for the leader type in the creation of a label style? Is this option available in 2013?

 

I don't have this option but need it badly. I have a PVI block in the non-dragged state with an elevation below it, from there I'd like to go to a dragged state only with the text, but leave the PVI block in-place. As of right now this is not possible.

 

Problem with this is that it's two choices. As Composed or Stacked Text. Stacked text would work, if C3D would allow me to select a block as my leader. Autodesk people are you listening? No reason to not allow us to select a block for a leader type when creating a label. This is a no brainer.

 

For the time being I'm looking for a solution. I don't want text over text but the PVI block needs to be left in place. (image shown - triangle and dot is the PVI block).

 

Thanks.

You could use two different labels: one for the block, one for the text.

Drag your text, leave the block alone.

It's not really that much work, once you have them set up in the label set so they both come in.

Thanks for the workaround. Was on the list already, at this point it's not an option. Will need to setup the template down the road like this in order to accomodate. For the Autodesk guys who read this please add "BLOCK" as a leader type in the dragged state label styles. Why not?

Why not an option?  Shouldn't be hard at any point. Just copy the label style, turn the visibility of the text off in one version and the block off in the other.
