Change Civil 3d labels elevation to zero

Change Civil 3d labels elevation to zero

Civil 3d labels currently have an elevation relative to the feature they are linked to.

 

When using true type fonts, the civil 3d labels plot differently (bold at reduced scale & jagged on pdfs) because the elevation is not set to zero.

 

There doesn't appear to be anyway to set the elevation of labels to zero (apart from exploding them, which for me is a big no no).

 

Can this please be updated so that the elevation of civil 3d labels is zero.

I would alter this just a bit. I don't want the labels to always be at elevation 0 (snapping to surface spot elevations is a great workflow) but I can see why some would want them at 0 so, give us the option to display them at the elevation of the feature or at elevation 0.

Yea I agree an option for either would be good.

Maybe they could fix the root cause

@ian.philpott I agree, the root cause that initiated this wish is an issue that should be fixed but, even if that wasn't an issue, I still think this is a valid wish.

Agreed, as we both know we all use the software in different ways.
