1. Every time I try to add vertical curve labels the dimension style switches to 'style overrides' and the dimension is huge. Why?
2. My vertical curve elevation label values is set to 25', but it is only labeling them every 50'. Why?
Check your profile, is it loading correctly? if so,go in your drawing settings and check the Profile Value Settings, and look in the Vertical Curve Labels box. Is this set to 50? if so set to 25, and off you go. I don't use this function very much so if it works make sure to post. :Cheers:

This is standard behavior in Land Desktop. It's very ill-conceived behavior, but it's the behavior Land Desktop has always had, so at this point, it's probably the behavior that Land Desktop will always have.Originally Posted by dfarris75
The problem comes from Land Desktop trying to be "helpful" and add an override to your dimension, based on the Drawing Scale. It does this as soon as you run a Land Desktop command. If you delete the override, Land Desktop will add it again the next time you use a Land Desktop command.
There are ways around this problem, but it involves setting up your Dimstyles a certain way, then using Land Desktop in a certain way. I've covered the process in bits and pieces in various posts throughout the AUGI forums, but I probably don't have a coherent explanation all in one place. The problem comes up enough that it would probably be a worthwhile topic for an article... I'll try to spit one out when I have a moment.
The whole thing is terribly irritating, and it would be very nice if Autodesk would just fix the problem, and make Dimstyles work in a way that makes sense. But at least we have SOME sort of automatic scaling in Land Desktop - users of Vanilla Autocad have things much worse. They don't even have automatic text scaling in Vanilla Autocad... "Thank you, Autodesk!"
Here is that article.Originally Posted by richards.64879
It had been a while since I'd really thought about what a convoluted mess Text Styles and Dimstyles are in Land Desktop. Putting this article together really made it hit home...
In Civil-3D, everything is different, and most of Land Desktop's problems no longer exist. Of course, there's a whole slew of new problems...
