Text Angle: Pick start point: Pick the start point and the end point to define a Text Angle or define the rotation angle at the command prompt.
Number of decimals <3> - Enter a numeric value for the desired number of decimals places and confirm with Enter. Further, for each contour elevation, you will have to pick the insertion point for the label belonging to the current contour.
Pick text position <7619.02,5453.85,1000.00> - Pick the insertion point for the text label. The label with contour elevation will be inserted at the selected point. The command continues to prompt for a Pick Text position till all the selected contours are done with Elevation labels.
