When creating profiles, we have the option to create label styles for the profiles. If for some reason we have not attached labels to the profile, we can still add them later if needed.

  1. Now, in the Type drop-down box, we can specify the type of label to add to the label set. Once we pick a type of label, we can later define the properties for the label style. These properties vary depending on the type of label. We may have properties like stations, geometry points, lines, grade breaks, and vertical curves.
