Currently, I have my existing utility lines in 2d view with a feature definition and plotted them at an assumed depth of 3' below existing ground in profile view and set as active profile. Typically, in SS4 and SS10 this worked in terms of displaying the utility line in my cross-sections views. However, in Openroads it shows my utilities only as a point. I am unable to display the height and width of the utilities. Is there something crucial I am missing or is this process done entirely different.
It's very similar to the instructions in the video here... https://communities.bentley.com/products/road___site_design/w/road_and_site_design__wiki/35937/video-displaying-row-cell-in-cross-sections
Use the features and cells you want to associate for the utility lines. I'm surprised it's showing anything at all... Are you sure it isn't a small ellipse you're seeing? In that case, it may be a scale issue within the manage annotation dialog.
When I expand the explorer to see my annotation groups I am not able to see anything? I opened my cross-section file and there is nothing for me to expand the "Annotation Groups" to even though the model has obviously been annotated automatically and I am also noticing this in other files as well such as my plan sheets where there is no annotation groups being displayed under the Explorer.
Where did the file come from, and are you certain that you are using the same resources/ workspace/workset as the originator of the file? If you go to the backstage File > Settings > Configuration > Configuration Variables, what is the value for the variable CIVIL_ORGANIZATION_STANDARDS? What workspace are you using? Are you sure everything is set up in that workspace?

I created this file from the Openroads interface. And it should be using the same setup as the rest of the files.
I'm unsure as if this answers all your questions. As far as the workspace being fully setup that is something that I have not verified with our IS team. I'm sure there are a few things missing but at the very least I think I should still be able to see the Annotation groups used in this file?
Do you want to annotate them, or do you want them to display?
I am trying to understand why my Annotation group is not displaying itself under my file in the explorer toolbar. I need to be able to edit this annotation group so that I can add different annotation labels to my cross-sections. In that second screenshot there are no annotation groups shown for the file despite having the model labeled with one.
I have found that you can modify the annotation group in the default model of your cross section drawing. In some cases I have had to switch files and then back to the cross section drawing to see the annotation group and any other options under OpenRoads Standards. The annotation group is set when you create the sheets (cross section or plan) but you can always remove the annotation from the cross section design model and reapply once the edit is complete.
