The SmartLabel tool can be used in a variety of ways to label symbols in a drawing with code, common name or botanical name. Its use relies on two conditions being met:

  1. A suitable plant data file (plant database) must be attached to the drawing
  2. Each symbol used to represent individual species must be tagged with a record in the plant data file for the assigned species.
