I would like share an old Civil 3D tool that I recently used in a custom class, the command is called MOVETEXTTOELEVATION.
In the scenario presented, files are being provided from external sources and data in the drawing is only in 2D. That is the Contours, TIN lines and Points are ALL flat showing an elevation of zero (0.00).

- Adjusting the contours lines: Possible, but too time consuming to edit individually.
- Adjusting the point blocks “X” markers: Possible as well, too time consuming.
- Elevating the Text to the elevation value: Quickest method, described here.
With this example, a few assumptions were made:
