AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Background Mask Does Not Align With Text In Curve Labels

May 21, 2012

The background mask does not align with text in curve labels with the "allow curve text" set to true. See Attached.

I found old posts with this problem for version 2009 and older. Is it still a problem in 2011/12/13?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Background Mask (Text Mask) Editable In 2012?

Mar 22, 2012

how to manipulate the size of the wipeout for a text mask. 

Simply selecting the masked text in C3D 2011 provided pick boxes at the four corners of the wipeout, making it very easy to manipulate the size of the wipeout box.  I'm hoping to do the same in C3D 2012, but the wipeout seems to be treated like a block and lacks the pick boxes.A system variable maybe?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Why Does Not Consider Curve Labels As A Part Of Alignment Labels

May 3, 2013

I think it is normal to want a style showing stationing, speed design stattions, etc.But.... Radii of curves ? Clothoid parameters ? 

Why is the reason Autodesk developers think that designers dont want to see this information instead of "add labels, aligments, multiple segments,. etc .... 

(aligment by aligment ...... of a whole project ?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Annotative Text Background Mask Size?

Jun 14, 2010

I am working in Civil 3d 2010.  I have annotative text and when I apply background mask the width is huge.  Is there a system variable or something else that I need to change so the background will only be masked behind the text and not additional width?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Align Command On Surface Labels

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Vertical Curve Labels

Apr 8, 2012

I am having a lot of problems with my vertical curve labels. I created a style that shows the length of the vertical curve, the k-value, the end and start elevations, and the elevation and station of the PVI, as shown. My problems are the fact that when I want to flip a label, they all flip (shown in the second picture). I also have noticed that there is only one drag point. Is this a setting that I unknowingly edited, or is it possible to flip labels individually?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Line And Curve Labels And Tables

Jun 22, 2012

I am doing a project and I have a lot of feature lines.  I will need to be able to lable these feature lines with tags and then create tables for those.  My question is, is there an easy format that I can do that will lable these lines in an order I set it up?  Right now it just lables all over the place. The lines are counting the curves too.  For example: L1 L2 L3 C1 L5 L6 C2 L8.  I can make it work, would just think there is a better way.  BTW I am using Civil 3D 2011.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Vertical Curve Labels On Profile?

Jan 11, 2013

I just created a profile by choosing my PVIs and linking them together with tangent curves.  How do I add labels to show the vertical curve properties (K value, curve length, station of PVI, elevation of PVI...)?  I'm guessing I have to edit the label style?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Grips For Labels For Line And Curve Does Not Use Z Changes?

Aug 28, 2013

I'm using label for line & curve. 

I have discovered that the points from it is created are fixed in Z value.

You can use the grips with object snap , you can move the grips but the Z values are  preserved......

it should be to get the Z value of X,Y,Z given by object snap , isn't it ?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Rotate Line And Curve Labels

Sep 17, 2010

We would like to be able to rotate line and curve labels in Civil 3D 2010.

Some of our drawings get really crowded and we need to slightly rotate the line or curve labels.  This is fine with regular autocad text, but how can we accomplish this with styles and dynamic line/curve labels?  I can't seem to find a way to do this with the grips and setting up new styles with specified rotations isn't an option because we need to be able to fine tune and eyeball the rotation of the label to make it look right.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Vertical Curve Adjustments In Profile Labels?

May 7, 2013

On our road profiles, we have to show that low points and high points are adjusted to maintain a minimum of 0.6%.  see attached screen shot.  Currently, I am calculating the adjusted low point and editing the profile label. Since I can't figure out how to edit one label in a data band, I've been wiping out the old elevation and typing in the new elevation over it.

Is there a way to get C3D to do the calculation for me and populate the labels with the adjusted elevation?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Profile Vertical Curve Labels Shift Down When Publishing?

Jul 3, 2013

I have a large scale industrial project with multiple road profiles and sections sheets.  I find that when I plot my drawings manually by opening the drawing everything comes out fine.  But when I publish the drawings manually or thru Sheet Set Manager, it shifts my vertical curve labels on my profiles down, which then conflicts with the profile linework (see attached image). Unfortunately manually plotting these drawings is not an option. Because of the amount of information in each drawing it takes 3-4 mins to open and we have 200+ drawings in a single set of drawings, which we have multiple sets of drawings for the project.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Background Masks For Line Labels / How To Make Them Visible

Apr 13, 2012

I have some Line Labels that got exploded, and they contained Background Masks.

When I make a plot, the mask plots a dark rectangle.

How can I make the masks visible so that they can be erased? Is there a variable for that? What type of entity (name?)are they?

When I make "wipeouts" visible, you still can not see the masks.

AutoCad :: Background Mask In Dimension Text

May 23, 2006

If you can background mask dimension text the same way you can with mtext. I know i can explode the dimension and edit the text and give it a background, but that is poor practice. I still want to keep the dimension associated.

AutoCad :: Apply A Background Mask To Text

Feb 17, 2011

I have found where / how to apply a background mask to text (listed in the properties box when I highlight text). The list of fill colors does not include white. I was hoping to create a background mask that did not add a shaded box to a black and white print but simply blocked out the contents behind the text.

I am using 2010 LT if this makes a difference.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Background Mask Gone Wrong?

Jun 24, 2013

My background masks is displaying a border (which is not desired) and they are not masking the backound but instead are masking the text.  What gives? (see attached)

This issue is specific to one drawing.  It seems to effect all background masks regardless of style.  They are set to use drawing background color. And border option is set to false in the label styles.

The last items I worked on in the last sesson where to create a corridor and an intersection.

Also, why the pen table is printing correctly that would work as well. The attached image was printed using a black/white pen file. Go figure.

AutoCAD LT :: Creating Text Style With Background Mask

Jun 26, 2012

AutoCAD LT 2013

For some reason my qleader settings will not retain as they once did.  I have used them in the past with no issues, but can't seem to get AutoCAD to remember what I want.  It's a real pain.

I've tried toying with mleaders.  I like them for the most part, but I can't get my text to be background masked automatically (like I can with qleader).  I also will need to change my text styles as my current style scales the text size.  MLeader allows me to set the scale (MLEADERSCALE) for the different scales in my drawings which is nice, but without the background mask, I'd rather use QLeader.

Any way making the text with automatic background masking?  I don't mind creating a text style with background mask.....if that is possible somehow.

AutoCad :: Width Of Text Property And Background Mask?

Jan 18, 2012

When you click a piece of text in AutoCad and look on the properties pane, there is a 'width' variable. Why does the background mask for the text still work when the width property for the text is set to 0 or are these totally unrelated? What purpose does the width property of text actually serve (when it seemingly works fine when on 0)?

AutoCAD 2010 :: Multileader And Text Background Mask

May 29, 2009

Actually We are trying AutoCAD 2010 and i have a question about multileader i cannot find in the manual.we are used to set a bright background mask under our text (including Mtext, Qleader, Dimensions) this way the printed text can be seen much better in dark area.

Now i'm am upgrading from AutoCAD 2007 and discovering Multileader (and i cannot find the Qleader button on the ribbon) so i conclude the new "standard is multileader", this is annoying because i cannot find anywhere how to put text mask background inside text in mleader. any option available? i would like to begin to use this function, but the text background is mandatory here.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Background Mask In Label Styles

Oct 9, 2012

I wish i could plot label styles (pipe network labels, point labels, etc.) that contain background mask with the line merge setting ON. Mleaders with background mask plot fine with line merge on, but any intelligent object style containing a background mask will not 'mask' when plotting with line merge on.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Applying Background Mask In Properties?

Apr 25, 2013

Noticed that applying background masking to Dimension text, Mtext, and Mleader text is done three different ways in Properties? I wonder why they just don't all have the same properties and the same UI for accessing those properties.
Mleader = There is a dropdown box named "Background Mask" with two choices: Yes & No.Dimension = There is a dropdown box named "Fill Color" with color choices, where "Background" = masking.Mtext = There is a field labeled "Background Mask" with an ellipses button [...] that opens a popup box to set options.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Contour Label Background Mask

Nov 30, 2011

I cannot get my contour label to mask the contour line that it sits on.  I have no problems creating contour labels for my surface (whether using single, multiple, or multiple at interval options).  I have set my contour labeling defaults to not display the contour label line, as well as set Label Mask Type to Contour Line Only.  Under contour label style under Layout>Border>Background Mask, this is set to True.
