Bring all plant tags to the front

Recommended Posts

Hello there,


I am fairly new to the software so hopefully you don't mind my question.

I have arranged my plants in a hierarchy, some are in the front, others have been moved to the back.

When adding plant tags I have noticed that this hierarchy has been automatically applied to the tag lines as well, not only the plant symbol.


How can I keep my plants as I arranged them but make all tag lines visible throughout the plan.


I appreciate your time,


Kind regards,

You may want to check out the Data Tag Tool. This will allow you to create a tag to your graphic standards (its actually a symbol) then use them in a Viewport to tag the plants. This is fast and will always show "above" the other graphics in the drawing.


Let me know if you need help with the Data Tag Tool, I would be happy to show you how this works.

Dear Bryan,


Thank you for your quick response and yes, data tags are working - all leader lines are showing, great.

Just one thing on that note, when I try to align those data tags, it seems that the objects themselves have moved to the new postion but the text hasn't... So I can select the data tags, highlighted with orange but the text is not inside the box...it remains in the old position but is no longer active. Does that make sense, what I am writing? Could this possibly relate to my Macbook?


Thank you again for your advice.
