We are recently upgraded to Autocad 2014 Fabrication (CAD Mech). Before we upgrade to 2014 we can check/see the centerline of the pipe by placing the cursor on the pipe. Now on 2014 it changed to Top & Bottom info elevation instead of CL is there a way to change this back to center line? thanks in advance.

Hi btngpnoy,

 

If you’re not using cadbob’s suggestion of Level Blocks I’d suspect the “Same setting for Round” is enabled as per the attached.

See attached PDF for LEVEL BLOCKS. I named mine CL.

I don't believe you can do today's job with yesterday's methods and be in business tomorrow.

Exactly, UN-Check "Use same settings for Round"

Ok, you can use eaither method, the easy way would be as Nick suggested and Make sure you have un-checked use same settings for round. But if you like a custom centerline symbol like myself then the way I suggested would be best. So you have 2 choices! :smileyhappy:
