Insert Land Use Text

In Landscape, “smart” lines and land use annotations are used to generate hatched areas. This function inserts these annotations to define the area types. This is a step in the process of making land use areas in the drawing.

MOUS_ICO Menu: Landscape > Land use disposal >  Insert land use text

MOUS_ICO Toolbar: Land use disposal:  Insert land use text

When the command is selected a dialog will appear asking for the type of plan to work with. Choose 'Landscape Design plan with color' (matching your version) - click OK.

A palette with all area types will appear (Area library). Here you will see the list of main categories containing the area types, click the plus-signs to expand the categories to see their contents.

Choose the type of area you want to define and adjust the properties for your area. The [T] means that the annotation we are going to insert will build areas using the line types from the line library also marked [T].

In the lower part of the palette is the properties field, it is contextual and will vary according to the type of area chosen. The checkboxes next to the columns 'Code' and 'Description' select the content of the text. Values in white fields can be edited. Yellow fields are locked, while red means required fields.

When the area type has been chosen and the properties are adjusted (as necessary) the buttons at the top of the palette is used:

´Pick annotation point`: Pick an insertion point. ´Pick rotation angle`: set rotation in 'AutoCAD' manner, or just right-click to proceed and get a right-angled annotation.

´Pick single entity`: Pick an area annotation in the drawing - it will change into the current area type in the palette. NB! The area must be disconnected to alter the area type.

The properties are cleaned up by setting them back to default values for the chosen area type.
