Answers to your questions part II:

??? I've been trying this, but without success. No blank lines converted to text appeared? Could you please send me one th2 file, where there is a lot of text entries?

-id identifies the object it self (joins for example refer to id's). -name is a reference to survey station - it can not be ID, bacause you can not have two objects with the same ID in the same survey.

OK, the -scale does not work now. But the symbol can be easily redefined to change the number of ticks and not the size.

We will start working on this in the next release.

Click the l-size switch for one line point (optionally also orientation) and set the size to the desired slope width. This symbol generates gradient lines perpendicular (or in orientation) to main line with given size.
