Autoroute station labels wrong

Postby Glen A. Quarmby » Fri Sep 29, 2006 1:47 pm

The station labels on my road alignment are backwards. Rather than printing 0+560 for instance it is 560+0. If I explode the block it shows HSTATION + PSTATION. What is going wrong?

It sounds like your Station Precision is set to 0.

This technical note should help explain the topic a bit better: pick here

If you explode a station lable it is a block with attributes. Exploded blocks lose the values for their attributes. To edit the attributes, you would need to go to the CADTools menu -> Edit Block Attributes.

Station labels

Postby Glen A. Quarmby » Mon Oct 02, 2006 8:57 am

Thanks Glen.
So if I am using 1000 unit stations in the form 1+234 then am I forced to have 3 decimals in every station label (1+234.000)?
For the even stations I don't want any decimals but for the transition points I may want 2 or 3.
There are 4 variables is use here: station length(usually 100 or 1000), label interval (10 or 20 etc.), even station precision and transition station precision. Can we not control each one of these independent of the other?

Unfortunately, if you wish to see 1+234 we have to show it as 1+234.000

The program does not have any other options at present time.
