Labeling Streets and Roads

Postby jbrauch » Tue Aug 28, 2012 12:12 pm

Does anyone know how to click on a street and label the street.

I know in previous versions that there was a key you could press, then click on the street/road to have PM label it and this was independent of the label visibility setting.

I can't remember which key you press and I emailed support and they didn't know what I was talking about, so any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

Don't remember seeing a feature like this, though it would come in handy.

Charlie, I have been using their products since v2, I might have even fooled around a bit with their v1.0 for DOS :) I have copies of most (not all of them) still installed on my old XP system.

I believe the feature we are talking about was something available in Precision Mapping 6.0. I don't even think it was in Traveler 6 - they were too different products back then. That was 10+ years ago, eons in software time :(

It was part of an older drawing toolbar they had - see below for the button, "L" and the hint for it. No idea why it was removed in versions 7 and above. I didn't really miss it, because I was not using it a lot, but for those who needed it, it was very helpful.

Wow, why would they take such a function out? Anyway, I guess that's why I didn't see it. I don't go that far back ;-)

I would like to thank everyone who has responded.

I am positive that I have used the feature in v7, but will have to wait till I get back home to find the cd and play with it.

I remember being able to hold down a key or combination of keys and then click with the mouse on the streets I wanted the labels displayed. It was very helpful when I wanted a map that showed more area and could pinpoint the roads that I wanted labeled.

If I figure out how to do this, if possible in v9, I will post it here.

Thanks

Did you ever find out if that function is in the new version?
