ORD XS Annotation Issues

I am having an issue where I cannot get the window to select template points for elevation annotation to appear. I keep getting this error message after I click the Select points from Template button.

I am in my RDXSRD01 file in the roadway folder and my ITL file is also in my roadway folder, so I am not sure whey it doesn’t seem to want to open. This is happening on two separate machines, my local machine and my VDI.

  • Zachary,

    Would you press the details button and copy the text in the dialog that opens and paste it in this post?

  • I have attached a text file with the entire error message. It was very long so I thought I would do this instead of flooding the whole post.

  • I found a way around this, but I suspect there is still something wrong with ORD that is causing this.

    To preface, I had exported these XS Annotation definitions from another project and imported them into this one. I suspect part of the issue is in clicking that Select Points from Template is perhaps it was not able to find some of the points/templates I had used to originally create the definition because I was now in a different project.

    I created a brand new RDXSRD file, then a new Annotation Group, then a new Annotation Point Definition. When I did that, I was able to get the dialogue to come up where I could choose the template and therefore points that I wanted to annotate. That is where I encountered another issue.

    Not every template I had could be opened in this dialogue, including some of my older ones, but also the new template I had created to place a point at the existing ground at the CL. So then I went and created a new "Spoof" template by copying one of the templates that DID load into the dialogue and changing one of the point names on it to the point name that I needed. I was then able to get this Spoof template to load into the dialogue so I could select that point name. Then I just filled out the rest of the settings for that annotation.

    It seems like there are at least two problems I am encountering in this process that will hopefully get resolved. Its going to be a pretty standard workflow to copy annotation definitions from one project to another I can imagine. We cant continue to run into these sorts of errors.
