Escape character?

Postby cbnelson » Mon Jan 25, 2021 5:13 pm

Is there a way to have "/" in a text point description?
Ex. IO \\\ 5\8 Rebar Found ---> F2F ---> 5/8 Rebar Found
Thanks in advance!

Try setting up a code for the main point type and one for the size then use the prefix operator in the code like RBF \\ 58

You can also experiment with the settings accessed from the "GIS/Note/Point Attribute Labels" button. If you want the point added as an attribute block plus a text entity with the description on a different layer then enable the Description in GIS/Note... and set the Attribute Format to Both.
