    Default Always used LDD and C3D...Now on AutoCAD2012. How do I do a bearing and distance line table?

    I'm lost, I don't have any of my Civil add-ons or survey stuff. I am now working at a very small company...me and the engineer. We do Civil Site Design. But we only have AutoCAD 2012. I have used LDD and C3D for years before this. Long story short, we are doing a favor for a surveyor, and I am working on a wetlands map that has 1000 or more deliniation lines that need labled and I need to create a bearing and distance line table for them. Normally, this would be a few clicks and about 5-10 mins of cleanup work. But I can't figure out if its even possible now with the basic program. Any ideas, or lisp routines that would work for this platform? Thanks everyone!

    There are probably some AutoLISP routines out there to help. Otherwise, it will not be a quick and easy task.

    You might be able to create a dynamic block to display the bearing and distance between two points.
    If you have a technical question, please find the appropriate forum and ask it there.
    You will get a quicker response from your fellow AUGI members than if you sent it to me via a PM or email.

    Take a look at http://dotsoft.com/mapworks.htm and/or http://www.carlsonsw.com
    If this is a one time deal, get a Carlson demo and use it (it is good for so many commands, plenty enough to run a line table)
