How do I change the accuracy on my annotation (ex: stationing, coordinates, length)?


The accuracy is set from the Text Favorite that is assigned to the Annotation Definition.

  1. Go to OpenRoads Modeling > Drawing Production > Text > Place Text. Go to the star (Text Favorites) and click Manage
  2. Navigate to the Text Favorite that is used by the Annotation Definition.
  3. Text Favorites are part of dgnlibs, so if you want to change it in the dgnlib then open it up. If not, then copy the Text Favorite from the dgnlib to the dgn
  4. Now set the Text Style to same Text Style from the dgnlib. Then you can change the Accuracy for the Text Favorite. Then click Accept and Save.
  5. Go back to the Manage Annotations box and set the Text Favorite to one you copied to the dgn (skip this step if modified in dgnlib)
  6. Now reannotate and see the update
