View Label

Recommended Posts

I have this in a CAD Detail named " View Label"

post-47-0-76544200-1459197131_thumb.jpg

 

It consists of:

 1.  A Callout with Section Line (Text size is 18")

 2.  12" tall Chief Blueprint text  ---- %view.name%

 3.  6" tall Arial Bold text ---- Scale: %scale%

 

I can simply group select it from the CAD Detail Window and copy it to any view in my Plan to Label the View according to what's shown in the Project Browser.  Since it's not blocked, I can lengthen the line and move the "Scale" without any extra steps.  I change the text in the Callout according to where the view will be placed in the Layout Page.

 

Note, I use a similar one for my Details but the sizes are based on a 1" scale.  For Interior Elevations, I have one that's based on a 1/2" scale.

 

Actually I could use just one if I set it up for "Use Layer for Text Size" and the Layer Sets were set up to use specific sizes for the various Layers of the text and callout objects.
