Ramp spot slope


Ever notice that the Spot Slope annotation doesn’t display the slope on a ramp when the annotation is placed in a plan view?

The easy workaround is to:

  1. Open a 3D view and use the ViewCube to click the Top direction.
  2. Go to Annotate tab > Spot Slope, then place it on the ramp.
  3. Select the Spot Slope, then Modify | Spot Slope > Cut to Clipboard.
  4. Open the plan view where the annotation needs to be shown.
  5. Go to Modify > Paste > Aligned to Current View.
