Point Names - Annotated Plan
This tab is used to control point Names text. It can turn it on/off, set the font, colour
and style of the text to be generated.
This check box allows the user to turn on or off the point Names text.
Note that the Point Names text is generated and inserted into the job just like any other
piece of text. It can then be edited and altered at will.
This can also be turned on/off from the ‘Annotate Plan’ tab.
Note: When the points are changed the Point Names text will NOT be updated.
You must select the Annotated Plan option and re-generate the Point Names text.
Select the target layer on which the text will be placed. Press the [...] button to create a new layer.

generated text by directly changing the layer attributes.

the same colour as the layer text.
