Profile Station Labels Issue in Sheet Viewport

Hello friends,


I'm learning to make full use of the plan production tools in C3d but I am running into some issues. When I create my sheets I can't get the profile viewport to display to my liking.Ideally I would like my profile viewport to include my station labels on the data band, along with a "buffer" along top and sided so my grid doesn't run into the edges of my viewport.


Basically I'd like my entire profile view for each sheet to fit nicely and entirely in my viewport. If you look at the attached picture you will see that my viewport clips my profile view on top and bottom. What's weird is that the bottom looks like it's clipped at the bottom of the data grid, which in turn excludes my station labels. Anyone have any ideas?

If you look in the default template, there are bands called "Empty Band - Top" and "Empty Band - Bottom". There are used to "Buffer" the profile view so that the entire view will display in the viewport. To control the buffer, change the Layout elements to the desired info. The band height will buffer the top/bottom and the Text Box Width will buffer the left/right. I would set one of them to display the text box on the right and the other on the left.

There is currently no way to control the datum of the resulting profile views during plan production processing.

once the view is created you need to go back into the profile view properties and assign the top and bottom elevations of your profile view.
