Applying constraints to text rotation

We can apply parametric constraints to our text in AutoCAD 2011. This means we can create dynamic labels that follow our geometry if our design changes. In this lesson, we are going to learn how to create parametrically constrained text objects. On my screen I have a civil engineering example. This is a drawing of a cul-de- sac in a proposed subdivision. Let's zoom in a little bit. This green line work represents the location of the proposed sanitary sewer design. These blocks at the endpoints represent the location of the sanitary manholes.

As you can see, I have already added several labels to this geometry. Let's zoom in on one of these. If I select this, we can see it's a simple single line text object. My label contains a couple of carets that represent the direction of flow inside the pipe. I also have my pipe length, my diameter, the composition of my pipe, and my pipe slope. Now, it never fails. Once you have finished labeling your entire drawing, your design changes. For...
