During Civil 3D style set up’s I have created some complex and creative label styles for our clients. One example is a Structure labeled in a profile view that simultaneously shows data at the top of the Structure (name, rim, etc…) and at the bottom of the Structure (invert in, invert out, etc).

The apparent limitation is the out-of-the box setting for Default Profile Label Placement that only allows placement:

  • At Bottom of Structure
  • At Middle of Structure
  • At Bottom Structure

The only look that is typically possible by default look is something like this (top or bottom only):
