Overriding Label Text

Post  Admin on Wed Apr 23, 2008 9:08 pm

In this exercise, you will override the text in a single label. This is useful for adding text to an individual
label to mark a point of interest without modifying all labels that share a style.
For more information, see the AutoCAD Civil 3D Help topic Overriding Label Text.
This exercise continues from Exercise 3: Controlling Label Appearance Using Layers (page 15).
To override the text of a label
1 Zoom and pan to the area around stations 12+00 and 13+00.
NOTE Layer 0 must be turned on in order for these station labels to be visible. For more information, see
Exercise 3: Controlling Label Appearance Using Layers (page 15).
2 Ctrl+click the station label PC: 12+47.35. Right-click and select Edit Label Text.
3 In the Text Component Editor - Label Text dialog box, place your cursor at the end of the equation in
the preview pane. Press Enter.
4 Enter NORTHING: in the preview pane.
5 In the Properties list, select Northing. Click to move the Northing formula, then place your cursor
at the end of the equation and press Enter.
6 Enter EASTING: in the preview pane.
