Annotation and labelling is available in the Plan, Profile and Section Windows. This section describes methods and procedures to control label formatting and positioning.

Label Classes

Labels are displayed according to their Class Format and Point Format (optional). The menu View (Plan, Profile or Section) Options provides access to class label formatting. The Edit label tool button in the toolbar allows you to modify individual labels (point formatting) with the mouse. The Section window does not allow point formatting.

Figure 1: Label Rendering

All Label formatting is saved with your document of course, but only class formatting can be saved to a Screen Layout.

Note: When you retrieve a Screen Layout, you are setting all class label formatting (as well as the other saved layout options).

Refer to Getting Started section for file install folders (<RoadEngCivil> and <Defaults and Layouts>).
