Label Preferences

Preferences - Labels

Purpose

Alter the appearance of labels and associated graphics.

Usage

Label preferences are accessed from the Labels tab of the Preferences dialog.

 

Label Content

Text - The template used to construct the label's text. This can be a mixture of real text and macros identified by a leading and trailing % character. For a full list of the macros that can be used see the Label Template Reference page.

The  button by the Text value allows editing access to the saved templates. They can be altered or new ones created using this function.

Measurement Types

The measurement types are defaults used when inserting labels. Area, Length and Number (Each) labels will use the values in preferences respectively as their measurement type field. This can later be changed by editing the label .

The measurement type can be expressed within the label's text by using the %measurementtype% macro. For a full list of the macros that can be used see the Label Template Reference page.
