We keep seeming to experience the following issue on several projects when labeling drainage structures in ORD. Not sure if it is something we are doing wrong in the process of labeling or a known issue. Typically our procedure is after all the structures have been given a specific feature name, we create a separate text file to host the structure labels. We use the civil labeler tool and ellipse frames as shown in the attached screenshots. The template used for the labels is FDOT Dynamic labels. Afterwards, we simply click on the structures with the civil labeler tool open and the ellipses populate with given structure name. However, we will come back to the file hours or days later and all of the ellipses show up blank as shown in the screenshot. It has been unpredictable to tell when exactly it happens, but it tends to occur randomly after closing out of the text file we create. Any help with this issue would be greatly appreciated.
I have experienced this issue as well. Did you find a solution or determine what occurs to break the connection?
No resolution yet, we have just been saving backups of our text files for whenever it does happen again.
There was a similar defect in older versions of ORD and may be related to upgrading files. If this is happening beyond 2021 R1 you may need to have your admin contact Bentley to report the issue. Upgrade to 2021 Release 1 - Labels disappearing/moving This issue may not be related to FDOT's workspace and may be best discussed in the general Civil Forum.
