As a hint to what may be the problem, I'm trying to create the intersection using two profiles that are data references. The intersection command attempts to create two or three locked PVIs on the referenced profiles, but since they are data references, they are read-only, and will not allow the intersection tool to edit them, resulting (I believe) in the error we are seeing. Can you guys confirm that you were also doing this using data references when you received the error?
Sorry, I hadn't had time to answer your first post. Yes I was having the same problem and Gold Support confirmed that it would not work with data referenced profiles. I have since recreated my proposed profiles in the drawing in which I am creating the corridor. We have been trying to separate the data as much as we can but I think we ran into the limitations.
I then was going to create multiple corridors (one for each mile) just to keep them manageable, but ran into another snag in which you can not sample multiple datum surfaces (one from each corridor) so that would not work. I kept thinking so I tried again running into another snag. It will not let you have multiple sample line groups (that is plural with an "S") just like the heading on the prospector, from a single alignment. We are hear in Kansas where most of our jobs are built along the section lines. Six mile long road, one alignment. Won't work.
So now I am now trying to build one six mile corridor with 5 intersections as one. Not much fun but the isolate may help. I guess one advantage might be that I can look at where the intersections meet with the other parts of the corridor and see that they do match. (As in ditch elevations, etc.)
Does this help?
You actually can create multiple sample line groups for the same alignment, but it's not automatic. You have to create sample lines a second time, and then in the sample line toolbar you'll select New in the pulldown next to the SLG name. That does allow you to specify a new sample line group.
