Hello,

I want to ask if somebody know a trick to make automatic a dimension line for the distance between the existing alignment of a road and the design alignment.

This dimension line I want to be in the cross sections.

I make a project with a widening road and I have to show the diference between the old and the new alignment.

You could add a LinkWidthandSlope subassembly to your Assembly. Be sure to give it a unique Point Code and I would set Omit Link to Yes.

 

In the Corridor Properties, set the old alignment as the target for this new subassy.

 

In your Code Set Style, for the unique Point Code, create a label that reads the offset of the new point.
