Rogue lines in 3d Label legend

Recommended Posts

I just started experimenting with 3d label legends. These lines are jaunty, yet unexpected and not useful. I can't seem to get rid of them. Any ideas?

Those look like the much disliked lines that connect the text field to the origin of the instrument. However yours seem to be behaving very weirdly indeed.


To get them to disappear, find out what class your 3D label is assigned to and then change the pen setting in the class to none. Keep the pen colour though. That should make them disappear.


Could you post the whole file or one with just the label Legend so I could work out what’s going on?


Hope that works for you.

I took a look at your file. If you remove the pen from Class: Lighting-Label-3D and set the instruments to "by class attribute" in the Attributes palette, then the lines go away. The 3D Label Legend geometry is in a class that is defined in your Spotlight Preferences dialogue.


I remade your label legend and the Leader lines seem less chaotic now. I really don't know why this is the case but all seems to be well now. Did you bring this label legend in from an earlier version? I have had problems like this with some of my stock label legends.


Anyway. I uploaded the amended file for you to take a look at.

Thanks again, Mark!!


The 'by class attribute' is what I was missing.  I did not import the label legend from a previous file. It was brand new.
