[ORD] Profile Intersection / Crossing Point Annotation

Hi all,

I am trying to annotate the intersecting/crossing alignment names of my ORD Profile drawings and can successfully do this using a Text Favourite Label.

Is there any way to implement this Text Favourite as in an Annotation Group to label all my intersecting/crossing points automatically when applying Profile Drawing Annotation? Or even as a cell for Element Templates?

Regards,

Mark

    (Accusnap issue in Drawing Model)

    I stumbled on to this same question today. There seems to be no way to annotate point features as part of an Profile Annotation Group. I can use the "Place Note" tool with a Text Favorite that points to an Element Annotation->Feature Name and can place those in the profile model no problem. I have a small issue of needing to create a 5 scale vertical exaggeration Text Style to play nice with our plotting, but I can live with that. I tried to get around this by using "Place Note" in the drawing model only to find that the Feature Name is not exposed when trying to create a Text Favorite in a drawing model. So I created the Text Favorite in the Profile Model, and it still worked in the Drawing Model. The only problem I got is that Accusnap decided that it wanted to find the keypoint of crossing feature as shown (Same result if I use any other snap). I was able to use a label to get around this.

    After this, I attempted to create an annotation definition to take advantage of this only to find that there is no way to annotate a point feature (or PointEntity2d class per ORD) within a profile annotation set.

    Currently, I'm using it to display the name of a crossing alignment for our roll plots, but I would use this same workflow to label existing/proposed utilities in Profile/XS.

    Please let me know if I'm off base here and there's a better way to go about this.

    Thanks!
