I work with featureline on grading alot and wanting to know if working in plan view is there a quick way to apply a contant grade between to point that span across other points. At the moment I always open elevation edit there must be a faster way?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Just answered my own question
using the menu
Grading->Edit Featureline Elvations->Set Grade/slope between points command
Assign it to a button or shortcut key
also flatten grade in the elev editor - I misunderstood flatten grade made it 0, but it makes it what you want...
there is a button on the ribbon. when you grip a fl the ribbon defaults to it.
I always forget those buttons are there as you have to turn them on ever time you start civil3d by pressing the buttons further along just another button click.
That's why I typically edit Feature Lines from the Modify Tab of the ribbon, all of the commands, none of the pain of expanding the panels.
Not to mention if you grab the feature line first the ribbon goes there automatically. ...Hmmmm I guess I mentioned it.
No it doesn't Joe. As Justin noted, the first time you use it, the EditGeometry and EditElevation panels are hidden until you hit the 2 buttons.
First time and then...
Yes I can see how that woul be a productivity killer
