Place Civil Label with "Leader"

Working with OpenRoads release 13.  The "Place Civil Label" label seems to have the (some) ability to use a MicroStation Dimension style to set the properties of the label.  But it only follows a limited portion of the dimension style settings. 

Dimension Style Levels are not being used by Place Civil Label, and dimension with leader uses only a "one segment" leader with no ability to add "In-Line Leader" or "Text Frame" options.  The Place Civil Label" with leader only adds an awkward looking one vertex leader from the object to the text. 

If you edit the dimension style and save it, then click yes to propagate the changes to the dimensions using that style, then leader level changes, and sometimes the text justification changes but not in a way that follows the dimension style settings.

  • If you put the in line leader in the cell the labels will work with rotated views.  To flip the label cell to the other side of the leader use the mirror command.

  • i have to add to more things that don't update with civil labels. see screenshots below

    i have confirmed that the dimension style this civil label is using does match my "placenote" dimension style
    i can save and propogate most things in the placenote dimension style EXCEPT for where the leader is connecting to the text

    the civil labeler tool only gives me these options for leader placement and none of them put the leader at the middle of the top line... one of the most common placements of leader in civil engineering...
