When I draw in the profile layout I'm getting odd results when the labeling is placed. See attachment. I have been looking through the styles trying to find what is wrong. Any suggestions? Thanks!

Well, that DWT is not as good as the ones provided in prior releases. Not sure how the Curve Label styles got so, uh, tweaked. Is this more along the lines of what you are looking for?
If so, you need to set most of the Line components to use a Percent for the length, with a value of 100%. This will fix the Dimension part. Then, for the High/Low labels, these use lines which are set to be not visible. Turn on the visibility and you will see why they are not rotated correctly. Play around with the start/end attachments of these and see if you can mimic what I have shown. I'll post the drawing back in if you can't quite figure it out....but I'd like for you to try, that's how we all learn how to make these styles work for our individual needs.
If you want the dimension inside the profile, instead of above, this is controlled in the Profile Labels properties, and can be preset in the LabelSet. A Positive value places the label above, and a negative value goes below to anchor point.
are you using a style from the ncs template out of the box or did you start that label from a standard style?
For the labels with the odd rotation, make sure that their orientation is set to View or World Coordinates, instead of Object. We had problems with some of the profile labels getting set to Object when we migrated styles from 2009.
