Now that all the parts are in place…for our Storm System, let's add some labels.…I'm going to jump right in and open the Label Command,…so I'll click Annotate and Add Labels,…and I discussed this in a previous video…that I like to use this dialog, starting kind of…with the base dialog where I have control over everything.…There are other approaches to labeling,…but this is the one that I prefer and recommend.…So I'm going to click the Feature dropdown…and click Pipe Network.…And I want to do Single Part Plan.…
There are a lot of ways to label,…I can do the entire network at once,…Plan and Profile.…I've even got Spanning Pipes…where I can span across multiple pipes.…I want to do something very direct and simple,…Single Part Plan.…The label styles that I want to use are also simple,…Name Only, and Name Only for both the pipe and structure.…I could add labels that have lots of information in them…like the top elevations, invert elevations,…things like that.…But for this particular design I'm choosing…to use simple name labels…
