TIP2: Grip-slide and Copy - Try this one just for fun: Click a label to show its diamond-shaped grip. Then click the grip and enter C for Copy. Slide the label to the next lot and Civil 3D will copy the label. Strangely, this craps out if you have to pan out of your current view so zoom out as far as you can.
TIP 4: Where's That Darn Tag Number Setting?: On the Settings tab, right-click the drawing name and then click Table Tag Numbering.
TIP 5: Where's the Renumber Tags command?: Modify > Parcels > Labels & Tables panel. After about 10 times of clicking a tag, then clicking Renumber Tag on the contextual ribbon, I thought...there must be a better way. There must be a way to launch the command, then click a bunch of labels in the order I want. You can also type EDITTAGNUMBERS.
Hope these tips help you get your labeling done a bit quicker so you can have more time to play golf (ahem...) I mean get more work done.
