With ORD, since the very begining of Connect Edition, I have had issues with annotating segment slopes on cross-sections.
Is possible to annotate slope between two points on cross sections that are not created with corridor template?
Time ago I was told it will be solved in 2021 R2, apparently it is not. I can not force software to annotate slope between points, eg from my site design. I tried listing Feature Definition, Point names, created dummy template in itl to chose template segments - no success.
Please advise how do you annotate slopes or distances between two points that are not orginated in the itl template.
There has always been an issue with slope annotation on the cross-sections. With ORD 2020 R2, I succeeded in annotating Cant and Wall Height as " point to point" vertical distance. With ORD 2021 and R2, such exercise was impossible, though the same annotation group. ( imported as XML). The slope of the segments has been an issue and remains with 2021 R1 and R2. I did a lot of tests but never succeeded. In General, annotation of the cross-section remains unresolved with ORD AND ORLD. Furthermore, In 2021 R1 and 2021 R2, ghost elements are annotated.
Yes something that used to work: Defect 1142339:Xsection Annotation - Annotate user defined segment (not part of a template)
Unfortunately workaround is not so quick. One way, I don't want to annotate each cross section, is to create a template with same number of segments we want to annotate and create point control to each point. Set corridor feature definition to not display component.
Can we expect a priority build for this? We were told it would be fixed with 2021R2 when logged SR for this defect months ago. Annotating slopes manually is a pain and for some of our layout creating corridor just to have slopes annotated is not an option.\
Quite a basic functionality, I think.
hi, just installed ORD 2021 R2 (refreshed) with some defect fixed. This slope annotations for segments is still not fixed.
Is it on the road map at all? Not only I have to create template with segments but it also needs to be included in the top mesh. There is a number of scenarios whre we need to annotate distances and slopes between points that are not part of componts:
-non-linear works (with no corridors being used for modelling)
-slopes between point on the substructure (neither top nor bottom mesh) where pavement layers are not parallel - even for corridor modelling approach
-distance from the right of way point/marker to the slopes extremity
-distances between safety barrier and edge of traffic lane
-distance between fencing and slopes
-traffic lanes widths where full carriageway is not modelled (widdening scenarios, etc)
Oh no, I thought 2021R2 fixed this? I’m sorry it didn’t, but I’m sure Bentley is working on some sort of a fix soon.
