Been a little thin on the tips and tricks on this blog, so with AU out of the way time for some tips and tricks.
So in many cases we need to annotate our models for drawing output and having labels on certain linework is required at a set interval.
This method works from 2010 versions onwards.
You need to first setup your corridor at the interval you want, i.e. every 10m and turn off all options in the frequency.
From the Feature Line section, select the ‘Create Feature Line from Corridor’ and select the line in the corridor you want.
I would recommend that you actually zoom out before selecting as it will give you a list of feature line names to select if they are close together
Choose a style, this will draw another line on top of the corridor, you could always change them to no display afterwards, just not yet.
Here you can choose to retain a dynamic link to the corridor. If you need to change the frequency back this you could choose to uncheck, but will be then static to the corridor model
Now, choose the annotate tab and ‘add labels’ and then ‘feature lines’
Change the label type to ‘Multiple Segment’ and then a suitable style.
These are all available in the UKIE template so at vertex above, below and rotated to the line etc
Select the line and all done.
These are dynamic unless you switched that option off earlier.
This method I would say is the best for annotations on drawings and retaining the dynamic nature of the design
