I'm attaching a dwg w/ an alignment that the profile wont start at 0+00. The alignment is a line followed by reverse curve(s) and then a line. When i try to create a surface profile it wont start at 0+00, its starts at 2+55.93 which is the end of the first line segment and beginning of the first curve. Its the alignment named "ScottMill". Any help is very appreciated.

There are no alignments defined in the drawing.

Sorry, attached the wrong file. This one has the alignments. Had to zip it to get it under the size limit.

Look at your surface in the object viewer, there is a gap in the surface for the beginning portion of your alignment.

Thanks for the tip. I dont use Object Viewer, PC isnt stout enough to run it. Adjusted my triangle length and it profiled just fine. Once again, appreciate you catching that. I'll know what to look for if it happens again.
