AG (Align points command)

PostPosted by abiehl » Wed Feb 18, 2015 11:32 pm

I've been using the AG command to rotate/translate. It is easy to use, but it also rotates all the point labels along with the points so that labels end up askew/upside-down. I can re-orient them by playing with the LG command, but then I end up with 2 sets of labels (one set askew and one set horizontal). It's really throwing a wrench in my gears. Any ideas? Thanks.

Are you using Dynamic Labels?

No. Not a big fan of how they look. Will that fix the problem?

If you use dynamic labels they will always be horizontal or whatever angle you preset them to. If you want to print with the points turned on you can LG and switch them before you print. Do you not like how they look on the screen or when printed?

My little trick is to X3 once you get the points right, remove them and re-insert them. For me it is a quicker way to deal with it. Sometimes one of my field crews has points 90° or 180° so I rotate and translate then X3 to fix quickly without going crazy tilting my head to draw using the points.
