In marine mode drawings by rule, labels can be used for text, symbols, and dimensions. The label definition can have multiple components, assigning a text box, symbols, or both. You can also assign different labels to the same object type in a drawing. You define labels when you define the rule set view style using Tools > Define View Style in the Drawings and Reports task.

Delivered labels rules are located in the [Reference Data Folder]\SharedContent\Drawings\Catalog\Labels\Templates folder. The properties available for label rules are taken from the objects in the model. The label rules assign formatting and display the property value on the drawing.

When creating labels, it is recommended that you start with a basic tooltip definition, then add formatting to make the label more specific to drawing output.

Drawings by rule labels have three components:

  • Property labels generated through the Catalog - Used to find existing properties on objects. You can also write SQL labels to calculate properties that are not exposed to the end user in the model.

  • SYM file - Used to control placement on the drawing. The SYM file can contain a text box or a graphical symbol.

  • XML file - Used to format the label and populate the symbol.

The following table shows the delivered labels and dimensions that are applicable to drawings by rule. For more information on using symbols, see Symbol Definition for Drawings by Rule.
