• Civil 3D: Label Styles and Fonts

    Are you “The One” who is master of label style creation for your firm? Have you seen this, and you don’t like it? If so, read on.

    The code in question can occur if, within your Text Component Editor, you have font overrides.

    There is a right click option that is supposed to remove any formatting. But you know what? Sometimes it doesn’t work. What to do?

    The Solution:

    1. Ensure you don’t actually have an alternate font selected in the Format page. It needs to match the font specified in the Text Style for the label style. FYI, if you DO have an alternate font chosen, that {\fCalibri code will not go away with this technique.

    2. Copy the “code” from the editor. Ctrl+A. Copy all of it!

    3. Paste into Notepad.

    4. Copy the same code, but from Notepad this time.

    5. Paste back into the editor.

    6. Done!

    Yes, it does work. Why? I’m not sure. There must be some hidden creatures in there somewhere. Notepad does not allow such things to linger about.
