I have a base file where I have labeled all my tracts. I then xrefed that drawing into a sheet of my plan set. In the base file the arrow head shows up correctly (using the Integral arrowhead). Once I xref the base file into my sheet, the arrowheads change to the closed filled arrowhead. In the sheet file, there are no label styles at all. I also have the annotation scales set the same in both files. Anyone have any ideas as to how I can fix this? My boss really wants all the labels just in the xref and not placed in each sheet.
How it looks in my base file:
How it looks in my Sheet File:
Thank you for any assistance given.
Civil 3D 2013, SP1
Perhaps try bringing one of the leaders with the associated text from the Base file to the Sheet file (copy-paste). That way if there are any missing styles they will be copied over.
Just a suggestion,
I am having the same exact issue with Arrow Head Style (Dot) in Civil 3D 2013. I didn't copy an existing style. I made a fresh one and completely detached and re-attached my xref. No luck.
I did "Stacked Text" and "As composed" text. Detached and re-attached xref. No Luck
I set the arrow head style to "none" and it worked. (no arrow head shown)
I then changed my Arrow head to Dot small and the arrow head remained like the "none" setting. Weird.
I then changed my Arrow head back to the original "Closed fill" and it worked. (regular arrowhead shown)
I then changed my Arrow head to Integral and it went back to the "none" style. Weird.
I then decided to make a new label style in the plan sheet. I then dragged and dropped the style to the xref. I annotated the xref and the label looked like It does on the plan sheet. So I save the xref and prepare to reload my plan sheet to see if it updates. I hit reload and it goes back to the arrow head. Failure.
After numerous attempts of different settings and checking blocks and leader settings I achieved nothing.
What is the Status of this issue?
Is it user error? Because if it its I need help.
Autodesk issue? Is it known and being worked on?
What's beef with this?
Does anyone know if there's a solution to this problem yet?
I'm having the same issue with surface spot elevation label styles in their dragged states. Even though the dragged state style is set to display anything other than the "Closed Filled" (arrow head), when x-referenced into another drawing, the labels are taking on the arrow head properties of the current dimension style in that drawing. The only fix I've been able to come up with thus far is to set the current dimension style in the drawings with the x-references to a dot style.
We use a custom block on the leader and it works through Xref. In our case for spot elevations we use a simple hatched circle. Remember that the block will scale, so ours is something like .1 inchs or so.
I know this works for spot elevations, and I assume it would work for other leaders as well.
