I am still new to Openroads software , I was trying to find out what is the way to show the Profile Annotation such as (Curve,K Values,Grades..etc). From what I understood that I should use Place Named Boundary but everytime but the create drawing windows doesn't show up and I got message that Group is not found. Please advise
Place Named Boundary defines what you are putting on the drawing i.e. what area/chainage limits. It does not define the annotation.
Taking the feature definition 'Geom_Baseline' as an example, it uses 'Feature Symbology > Profile > Geom_Baseline' to set the annotation group to 'Profile Annotation' - this group annotates the grades etc.
Please have a look at the Civil Wiki
Thanks for your reply.So based on this , to display the annotation no need do place named boundary.But when I do Element Annotation/Model Annotation for the profile no annotation is shown in the profile.
You need to creates the Named Boundary to create the Drawing Model, which is where the annotation is created. You do not annotate the profile model where you create the vertical geometry.
The videos on the wiki page should show the process. For example, create profile sheet with framed annotation.
The inability to annotate profiles (or cross sections) seems to be a recurring issue.I understand the theory that annotation is only necessary for sheets, but I am not a supporter. The ability to see design information from a glance at the screen is an important design "cue". Very helpful to be able to add annotation to mark point/feature information I might like to recall, or even to share my screen with the engineer to get his opinion on some design decisions. The requirement to take all the extra steps to create the "drawing model", just to SEE design information is extra work, not intuitive, and not very helpful.

I followed the videos instruction but always after I finish the Named Boundary step , Create Drawing windows is not opening and I recieve this Message (Group "Alignment Name" not Found)
Do you have the 'Create Drawing' check box turned on when creating the Named Boundaries
Check what Named Boundaries you have already created. Open the Named Boundary dialog as shown in the image - NBs will be listed in green boxed area. If there are NBs there, the icons on the top will be activated - and you can create your drawing.
What are the groups PA12-D6 and PA12-D02 supposed to represent?
It suppose to present the profile group. It is also the alignment nameNow when I clicked on the Show the Create Drawing Dialog , I received the same message (Group PA12-D02 not found)
Have you deleted anything since you created the Named Boundary? Saved Views? It may be easiest to start from the beginning again with a new Named Boundary.
I did it in a new file and started from beginning , I am not sure if I missed any steps or any files is missing
