The question, is often asked, "into which model do I place my text?". These are the recommendations:
Orthogonal Text – Sheet model
Non-Orthogonal Text – Any model
Text that might need to appear in more than one sheet or different sheet cuts, and not orthogonal – Design-type or Drawing-type models.
Non-civil Text that is required to be orthogonal to the plan sheet – put this text in the sheet. You can control the orientation of orthogonal text in the sheet with only two active angles: 0° or 90°. Examples are descriptive text, note text and legends, and ODOT bubble notes.
Plan text that is placed to be read “ahead on line and along a curved alignment” – it might be easier to put this text in either the drawing-type model or the design-type model; that way the text will appear in different sheet cuts. Civil plan annotations like stationing in an OPNP file: put this in the design-type model (Default) - that way it will get displayed in cut, 11x17 drawing-type and sheet-type models.
Profile text - put civil annotations in the drawing-type model; place non-civil annotations in either the drawing-type or the sheet-type model.
ODOT Bubble Notes – If the text within the bubble shape should be orthogonal to the sheet – the bubbles must be placed in the sheet model. This is a limitation of the current version of the ODOT Bubble tool.
