Annotation for the horizontal alignment is not showing up in the dgn file. There is no tick marks, station labels, distance and direction labels,etc. that were displayed when plotting the alignment with the GEOPAK Design and Computation Manager.
There are a few things to check to make sure the setup is correct:
1. Make sure you have linked your DGN file to your DDB file that has a feature you will use for your horizontal alignment.
You may have done this automatically when you loaded a custom workspace there is a variable CIVIL_CONTENTMANGEMENTDGNLIBLIST that will attach the Feature Definitions as Libraries and be available for use in the DGN file.
2. Make sure the feature you are assigning to the horizontal alignment is set up correctly. Auto Annotate and Auto Persist need to be set to True in the Plan properties of the Feature.
3. Make sure that your design file Drawing Scale corresponds to a Scale that was used to set up the D&C Manager Item.
Notice in the example above that the Large Tick marks have a 50 scale option and so they will show up as described when the drawing scale is set to 1"=50'
4. Some users may use a Drawing Scale of 1:50 or 1:40, etc. instead of 1"=50' or 1"=40'. In this case the user will need an additional configuration variable set.
The configuration variable is GPK_DDB_NO_DIVIDE_BY_TWELVE = 1 When you set this variable the software will not divide the Scale value set in the scales.def file by 12. The software divides the Scale value by twelve and then correlates it to a scale set in the DDB item as shown in the dialog above.
An example of the scales.def file is shown below
# Name ScaleFull Size 1=1 ;1:11"=10'; 120:1 1"=20'; 240:1 1"=30'; 360:1 1"=40'; 480:1 1"=50'; 600:1 1"=60'; 720:1 1"=100'; 1200:1 1"=200'; 2400:1 1"=300'; 3600:1 1"=400'; 4800:1 1"=500'; 6000:1 #Direct scale names1:5; 5:1 1:10; 10:11:20; 20:11:25; 25:11:50; 50:11:100; 100:11:200; 200:11:250; 250:11:400; 400:1 1:500; 500:1
The right side is the scale value and the left side is the name of the scale that shows in the dialog.
