Point Numbers - Annotated Plan
The Point Numbers tab is used to display set the font, colour and style of the
Point Number text to be generated for points.
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.
This check box allows the user to turn on or off the point number text.
Note that the Point Number 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 Number text will NOT be updated.
You must select the Annotated Plan option and re-generate the Point Numbers text.
Select the target layer on which the text will be placed. Press the [...] button to
create a new layer.
Note that the text may be generated using the font, text size and colour of the layer it
is placed on. This allow you to easily change the size, font or colour of all the generated
text by directly changing the layer attributes.

same colour as the layer text.
Select the font of the text, select ‘*ByLayer’ if you want the bearing text to use the
same font as the layer text.
