Annotated Plan Settings




This option will generate bearing and distance text into the job for the following elements:
The Edit/Annotated Plan option is used to display the Annotated plot dialog box.
To compute the annotated plot, follow these steps:
1. Turn on or off any required options for Lots, areas, bearings, distances etc
2. Press APPLY or OK to generate the annotated text. All the text will be computed and generated immediately. Any generated text from a previous attempt will be automatically erased first.
3. You can then zoom and pan around the job to inspect the generated text. Use Text mode to move or optimise the text placement.

Viewport
Select the viewport to be used when generating the annotated plot. The viewport rotation angle is used to orient the bearing and distance text so that it can be read easily from the bottom of the viewport.

Do Strings on Non-Visible Layers
When generating annotation text, the program can optionally generate text for strings on layers which are not currently visible.
If this is not ticked and ‘Erase All Previous Plan Text’ is not ticked, the annotation on non-visible layers will not be erased.

Do Partial Lines
This option allows the program to include or exclude lines which are partially inside the Viewport.

Erase All Previous Plan Text
Tick this box to remove all previously generated Plan text. (Lot No text, Area text, bearings, Distances, road chainages, angle text, short line table). You may not want to do this if you have generated some text for another part of the job.

Do Short Lines Annotation
Tick this box to force the generation of bearing/distance text for short lines. This option is only available when the Short Line table has been disabled.

Note: Vic plans do not allow a short line table, all bearing and distance text is plotted on the plan.
