Hello,

 

What can I do to show intersection information in a profile label?

 

I mean, supose I have two roads (A and B)... what should I do to show in the road A vertical profile the name and the station of road B in the properly position of this A profile?

 

example from a similar post (pdf attached):

You can insert a block at the intersection and use the project object to profile view tool and select that block.

Thanks for your reply, Matt.

 

And how can I insert a block in the intersection? Should I do it manually or set it by some alignment or intersection style?

Of course I already have an intersection object set but maybe this is not what you are talking about ...

 

Thanks again and I hope solve it :smileyhappy:

No just a regular block. It won't dynamically move if you adjust your intersection.

WISH:
The ability to project an intersection object to profile views. Better yet, let's make this an automatic thing. Project ALL intersection objects as they are created.

Later I'll try do it dynamic with visual basic :smileyhappy:

 

I share your wish. Thanks!
