  • Labels keep in place or lock the location after update a drawing

    Hi Janet,

    The labels that I want to keep in place (lock) after manually edited are the mark’s labels (with leader arrow) in an erection drawing. (Please see attached files: one file indicates the wanted location of labels (manually moved), and the other file indicates the location of labels that I get by default (since the first time the drawing is created the labels always appear in the same original location after a update of a drawing.)


    I have no problem to move few mark’s labels, but the issue is that there are many beams and many floors to be updated, and move again one by one after every update is a big issue.

    Thank you.


  • Labels keep in place or lock the location after update a drawing


    Is there any tool or setting for the labels in order to keep in place or lock the location after the clean up is done in a (GA) erection drawing? Every time that I update the labels comes to the original place and it is a mess (too much time to relocate again to the appropriate location).

    Thanks in advance.
