Elevation Camera Labels/Callouts show Sheet Number

Recommended Posts

I think I am missing something. I want the "Text Below Line" on my Elevation Camera Labels/callouts to show the sheet number. And make this the default. Does any one know how?

It works automatically if you select the automatic function for "Text Below Line" once you send the camera view to layout and the page you send it to has something entered in the Label field of the Layout Page Information. Then it will show in plan and layout if you have the Cameras layer turned on.  Also it can be set in Default Settings > Camera Tools > Cross Section/Elevation > Plan Display > Text Below Line:  8850486_ChequeBox.JPG.f3d0a66f9b2d5985bf9c2a1c773720b5.JPG Automatic.

 Thanks for your response. That's what I thought was supposed to happen when the automatic button is checked. But in my case its the sheet description not sheet number. Perhaps I need to reinstall.

I have not heard of that being a problem. Maybe just make sure the sheet number is in the Label field of the Layout Page Information.

Easiest way to access the Layout page Information is from the Project Browser and then right click menu to open.

 

Post a few screen shots of your situation if that is not it and someone will help out.

thank you I understand what you are saying. but the software  puts the description box in bottom of the call out. essentially it's taking the information out of the wrong box. Looks like a technical issue on my end I will reinstall and try it

Don't reinstall.  I just think you're not fully understanding how it works.  If you have actually sent the view to layout, then the automatic text below line gets its information from the Layout Page Label.  If you want to see the sheet number then you will need to enter the appropriate information for your layout page using the Edit Page Information tool.  You can either enter a page number manually or use the # sign with or without the appropriate numbering scheme prefix (A-#, E-#, etc.).  It sounds like perhaps it's you that's putting the information in the wrong box.

      Hi, 
      I have attached a couple of screenshots to best describe my problem
      Whenever I move the camera view, I get this sort of distort colouring on my walls?
      Any ideas what's causing this?
       
      Thanks

      Has anyone found how to re-name their Camera Callout Labels in X12? For example, my cameras are set up with a Callout Label of "C1, C2, C3..." etc etc. This is by way of some default setting that I cannot seem to find. Each new camera automatically labels and numbers itself in succession as noted above. However, I have decided I'd like name all of my future Full Cameras as "P1, P2, P3... " in a new plan. 
      Except for opening each individual camera to change the Callout Label, I cannot find a setting to change this default to start with a "P" and automatically number itself from there! It seems to be missing from the Full Camera Defaults page.. You CAN set a default for "Text Below Line" but not for the Callout Label itself for cameras?

      I seem to be having a problem that I am at my wits end with.  It appears that my plan is showing double callouts for all my windows and I can't seem to figure out how to get rid of them.  I have tried deleting my window schedule and then inserting it again but nothing.  Has anyone else had this issue before?

      Hello I'm having an issue w/ my elevation. How do you get it to update automatically what layout page it is on?

      Is there any way to change the auto-generated window numbers that appear as callouts when you make a window schedule? I know you can choose to use a user-generated label instead, but I like the checks and balances of a callout for all similar windows, and the look of a shaped border. Unfortunately, can't figure out how to make that happen here. 
      What I want to happen: all similar windows have a callout with a shape border that I can set, and which will appear in order in my schedule, and as the label on my elevations
      What is happening: Chief generates a callout which I cannot change. If I make a custom label, it shows only as text/no shape border.
      Any advice is appreciated
      thanks
