Putting Alignment Labels in Paper Space (layout)

I have a number of problems with alignment labels showing up in layouts that I don't want to show or want to show up differently,.  Is there any way to label an alignment in paper space (layout)?  (or any other type of label).

As far as labeling in paper space, only way I can think of would be to explode the alignment labels to cad primitives and use Changespace command to move from model to paper. Not an ideal and non-dynamic workaround.

Are these by chance data referenced or is the source in model view?

If yes then you can actually do a lot of display manipulation by clicking into VP
And holding down ctrl key_select a sta label etc._rt click_label properties_visible_false (As with most c3d labels).

Or do the above & simply hit delete key. (The alignment label set can be reimported if need be)

If your issues is on in one vp and off in another, you should look into the style being used; you can set the style so the labels are on a lyer you can freeze in one vp and display in another with vplayer

Thank you

We do a similar thing to what Joe sugested but use the Object Layers setting and Immediate and independent layer on/off control of display components and have the alignment labels in a seperate layer/s from the alignment layers.


If we need labels to show at different offsets for different scales, we just add additional labels to the alignment and then move them to seperate layers. This allows us to have a set of alignment labels at 5mm offset from the alignment in one viewport and another set of labels at 70mm offset from the alignment in an another viewport.


You can also vary the start and end stations for you labels and have the label change style midway down an alignment.
