Change Batches of Pipe Network Label Styles and Override Text

I signed up for a free trial of so I recorded this very short screencast to test the site.  There is no sound in this recording.

I want to test the sharing site and see if it is something I can use to share recordings with clients, blog readers and more.  Let me know how it works for you and what you think.

The recording will show you how Civil 3D 2008 takes advantage of the AutoCAD properties box.  I show how you can select multiple structure labels and change their label style all at once.  Note some of the other things shown in the properties box- very cool.

I also demonstrate how to access the text override feature I discussed a few days ago.

The embedded video isn’t the best resolution (I had to shrink the embedded box so it fit in our blog template) but the nice thing is that doesn’t compress videos like youtube or google does.  The only restriction was the size of our page- and I will work on that for future trial runs.

The best way to see the video is to Click the Green Button below to be taken out to watch the video in a new window- it opens automatically in your browser and starts instantly.  Nothing special to download.
