I have been trying to figure out when my slope signature annotation is so temperamental. It sometimes works and sometimes doesnt work. I've even had it work, then i've removed the annotation, tried to reapply it and it not work when nothing at all has changed. I've tried to find the issue through process of elimination by checking, the annotation groups, templates, feature symbology and geometry i'm using. I've also experienced it only annotating part of the template length. I've also played around with the line lengths and offsets in the annotation group to try and solve this issue.
This investigation has led me to discover that the annotation only works for the first corridor of any given geometry. Please watch my video below demonstrating this. Can anyone help me with resolving this issue? https://youtu.be/Z3ueJfHYAMo
What version are you working with? There has been work done in this area for OpenRoads Designer 2021 Release 1 which may change this behaviour.
Currently using 2020 release 1. I will update my version and try again
Also, keep an eye on Bentley LastMileUtilities MDL, v2.1 coming soon which includes an alternative method of annotating slope signatures - https://communities.bentley.com/products/road___site_design/w/road_and_site_design__wiki/52965/last-mile-utilities---set-of-utilities-for-openroads-and-openrail-designer
Less automated but should work every time.

Hi Chris, Last Mile Utilities v2.1 is Released now. Please go through the video for the same. We would add more videos to show the capability of tool
Can confirm 2021 Release 1 works really well now. I would try that out before going to manual annotation (but good to have a plan B).
