This new tool labels contours using options such as ends, individual or multiple. The mtext objects generated are field based. That means you can move or copy the labels and the value will change on the next regeneration. The labels also have the background mask turned on, meaning it will hide the underlying contour without any damage.
This new tool generates a 3d (building) pad from a simple polyline at the desired elevation, including automatic daylighting to existing ground. Simply specify parameters and select the geometry.
