Associative Annotation for Geometry

Tired of having to re-annotate stationing and geometry labels every time you make an edit to a horizontal or vertical alignment? Thanks to the InRoads V8i (SELECTseries 1) release associated annotation is now available.

Geometry Options

  1. Select Geometry Options from the InRoads Geometry task bar.
Or from the classic InRoads pull-down menu select Geometry > View Geometry> Options. The Geometry Options dialog will appear.

  2. Toggle on the appropriate items and select Apply

Synchronized Geometry Style and Saved Preference

As normal, the alignments must be assigned a geometry style name. The key to making annotation automatic is that the annotation commands (view stationing, view horizontal/vertical annotation, etc.) must have a saved preference with a name that is identical to the Style name assigned to the geometry.

Upon creation or while making geometry edits the annotation will dynamically update and be re-written to graphics.
