When I use the Text Tool to annotate spot elevations, this is what I do:
- The vertex or control point I am spotting must not be grouped.
- I choose the Text Tool then hover over the vertex until it highlights (very brief).
- Click and drag.
= The red, green, blue (x,y,z) elevation shows up as leader text. Very handy.
However (see attached file) it does not always work properly:
When the Text Tool is applied to the endpoint of Line A, IT reports (–21’, 0’, 0’) as it should [with the exception of the double negative prefix to 21; anyone know what this is about?].
An error occurs when the Text Tool is applied to the endpoints of Line B. It reports z positions of “-0”. These points are actually 0.451’ below z=0.
Similarly, a problem arises when I take spot elevs from the “STACK”.
The “leaves” of the STACK are spaced 1’ apart.
The STACK is displaced upward by 0.540’
- The spot elevations taken about z=0 are correct.
- The spot elevations below z=0 are incorrect, showing integer elevations with a double negative prefix.
I might be missing something, but this doesn’t seem correct. Is anyone else seeing this?elev error?.skp (54.9 KB)
