Contour It (CI18)
Problems with Contour Labels
If you have set up Contour It! to include contour labels in your drawing and they do not appear, you may have a problem with the label being too large or too frequent. However, this problem is usually caused by your Segments/Curve setting.
Too many segments per curve may cause the contour labels to disappear. When printed, a contour label replaces a line segment in your drawing. If the line segments are too numerous, and therefore too short, your contour labels will be eliminated. For best results, keep the Segments/Curve setting as close to 3 as possible.
Adjust the Segments/Curvesetting by using Edit > Contour Setup as discussed on page 71 in the manual..
Adjust the Font Size and Frequency settings by using Edit > Drawing Entities > Labels as discussed on page 62 in the manual.
