    Question Description Key / point markers oriented to alignment

    Civil 3D 2017. Looking for help to orient description key/point marker blocks to alignment. For example I have several road signs located along a road alignment and use a "T" as symbol block. Trying to figure out how to orient the leg of the "T" parallel with my centerline alignment?

    Sounds like you want to rotate the point marker to make it look more realistic? That's done with the marker rotation on the point. Just select it and look for it at the bottom of your properties.

    Was hoping to be able to simply set the point marker orientation relative to the centerline rather than editing rotation for each point individually. Idealy in the Point Style however the only options for Orientation reference that I can see are "Object", "View" & "WCS". Am wondering of there is a way to add the defined centerline as a "4th" orientation reference or some other relatively automatic option to editing each point individually.

    Ah, yeah I'm not sure if that can be automated. It it's doable people smarter than me are going to have to explain how to do so.
