House to Propline Distance Routine

Post by Bill Tellier » Fri Jun 03, 2005 7:28 am

I have changed the Distance text characteristics to what I normally use, but when using this routine the text that's inserted always defaults to the program defaults even after I have changed and saved mine as the defaults. How do I change the defaults to mine and save them?

House Ties

The House Tie routines use the text in the Distance tab of the Labeling Defaults (under the MsAnnotate menu). If you set this size to the leroy size desired, the next time you run the house tie routine it will use this new size.

If you save the defaults as permanent (MsTools menu -> MicroSurvey System Defaults), all new drawings will have these labeling defaults set and use them automatically.
