Much Ado About Northing

A few posts ago I admitted not knowing a seemingly easy solution to assigning a different alignment to a structure label.  Something just reminded me of another forehead-slapper that I had awhile back and I thought...well, if it happened to me, its probably happening to someone else somewhere in the world.  So here goes...
Need a northing and easting label?  Don't do what I did:  create a point label style and make your users create points in the drawing just to make a label.  Instead, use a Note label.  These guys have northing and easting capabilities built right into the label style.

Works like a charm and there aren't any pesky points to deal with in the drawing.
