Hello all. Is there a way to change the font of an annotated line segment (an L number for tabling) without changing the regular line annotation? This is for survey work. Our bearing and distance is different than an L number (tabled number.) This isn't specific to survey just regular line annotation and tabled annotation. Also, I'm not asking about the table itself, I mean the annotation on the line itself. I've tried to attach a pic of the two different annotations I would like different fonts for.
What product are you using? Version Number? and what tool did you use to annotate the lines?

Very sorry for the delay. My microstation version is 08.11.09.459, and inroads is inroads survey version v08.11.07.615
I used "geometry, view geometry, filtered the alignments i want annotated, then click apply. That way all the alignments we build are annotated using the styles we have set up. There is an option for curves which we can change the fonts. The curves lay down a "C" number, for example, "C47" and then we put down a curve table. But for an "L" number, like "L45", I cant find a spot to change how it annotates the "L45" text style or color - like i can for the "C" numbers. We just created a "curve number" style and use that under 'geometry features, arcs, symbology" in the "edit style" box.
Basically if we have L numbers I cant find a place to change the font and color like the C numbers (arc annotation)
Doesn't this come from the Geometry Features > Lines - Symbology?

yes. i can change the text annotation along the line but i am trying to change the line segment numbers.
I always assumed that this was all part of the same settings.
Lucas, Chuck is correct. The L is defined under the Line Symbology, the C is defined under the Arc Symbology and the S is defined under the Spiral Symbology.
