Yes, Bill, you're right. At certain magnifications the software determines it
can't present the east
and west line descriptors because they'll collide with the corner descriptions. If
you zoom in
with the PgDn key (or the magnifier button) the east/west text will show up. Also, if you
the Standard Plot Font (View>>Options>>Standard Plot Font) to a small size you
to zoom in as much to see the text.

Subject: Re: [DMU] Line Distances
I used your data. If I "Display Lines" and don't "Display Corners"
all six distances do show but when I have both "Display Lines"
and "Display Corners" turned on the East and West lines descriptions disappear.
I am guessing, but I'll bet this occurs when Steve attempts to keep some of the
information from being displayed on top of other
Maybe Steve will offer a solution.

Perhaps I'm expecting something not there ---------
Pt At a stake 320 poles west of the south east corner of fractional section No 1 Range
Ln N; 228p;
Pt Creek Crossing
Ln N; 92p;
Ln W; 272.75p;
Ln S; 64p;
Pt Creek Crossing
Ln S; 256p;
Ln E; 272.75p;
Step by step ------
When I go to Plot View all four sides show with the points for the corners and the creek
crossings -- I click on Display Corners,
all text comes up, corners and Creek Crossings ---- I click on Display Lines, the four
distances on the sides come up, but not the
top and bottom -- I click on Display Area and the 545.5 A shows.
If I turn off the Display Corners, then all distances are shown.
Maybe it is because I used the intermediate points at the Creek Crossings. Will re-run it
without them. But too late tonight.
Thanks for the reply.
