    Default Label Styles and multiple text layers

    I have several types of easements that I need to label in a drawing. I have a few label styles that I use when labeling easements in a drawing.

    The issue is how do I get my labels to be placed on the correct Text layer for the corresponding easement.

    For example, I might have a shade tree easement and an utility easement on the same property. I want to place my easement text on V-ESMT-UTIL (for my utility easement) and V-ESMT-CONS (for my shade tree easement). I want the text to still be placed on the object layer.

    The only solution that I see is to create separate Label Styles and define them individual layers.

    Is there another solution to this? How are others working around this?

    That is how we do it.

    One style for [5' W.L.E.]
    One style for [16' U.E.]
    One style for [20' B.L.]
    etc.

    What about labeling bearing and distances? There are 4 different segment styles that we used for labeling them. I will create the individual segment label styles for each type of easement then too.
