If you are like me you have come across areas where Civil 3D labels look great in your drawing and other areas where they just don’t fit. For example, in the image below the label is too long for the pipe it is labeling. It may work great for other, longer pipes. But for this one it just doesn’t fit, and dragging it away from the pipe doesn’t look much better.
Learn how you can limit the length of labels in Civil 3D so that they fit the area that you have available and the geometry you are labeling with this tutorial.
