I have wanted to write this one for a while now. As we all know, Civil 3D is great with its dynamic annotations and displaying information about objects, however sometimes we need to add an extra note. The software does provide a function to allow the user to add much needed notes without creating an additional style, via the use of the ribbon or right click with the Edit Label Text command. This allows designers an “AutoCAD” like text functionality with Civil 3D.
As seen below a created Civil 3D label has been edited for the Surface, Section View or Profile View objects. Also there are 2 styles in use in each view, one set to 1 decimal place, and the other set to 3 decimal places.
