Automatically Create Annotation?

131 Views, 2 Replies

I'm creating/applying Object Data for Pipe Size and Valve Number for a Water Main Atlas I'm creating in Map 3D.


Is there a way to define Annotation for the Valve Nubmer and Pipe Size, so the Annotation is automatically created when each Valve feature (entity) is created?  Or when each Pipe entity gets drawn?


I'd appreciate any suggestion on how to automate this process.


Thanks much,

You can use map annonation blocks. It's not going to label them as you create the entites but allows you to insert the block after you create the features.
