    Default Contour lables on a surface

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    In AutoCAD Civil 3D 2010 how can I label contours on a surface of just major contours? If I turn off minor contours and draw a line through the desired area and set an interval distance between labels, then autocad labels the major contours but once I turn minors back on again all contours are now labeled. There must be a way to label just majors while having major and minor contours showing?

    It's going to label any contour that intersects your label line. Just set the minor labels to a style that doesn't display, freeze the layer the minor labels would be on or set the display to off for the minor labels.

    Select the contour label(s). You can turn off the minor contour labels in Properties.
