Linking Feature Lines to points

Is there a way to link feature lines to points?  If I have a series of points and I've joined them with a feature line; I want the feature line to update automatically if I adjust a point elevation.  Thanks!

Use the Survey tools to create Survey Figures instead of Featurelines.  They look and act pretty much the same, but they're tied to the survey points they connect.  Please note - this method comes with it's own set of problems.

Thanks Steve.  I had tried using figures too, but it doesn't seem to be updating with a point elevation adjustment either.  Maybe I missed something; I'll give it another shot.

Keep in mind that the survey figures are tied to the points in the survey database, not the ones in your drawing.  You need to update the database to force the figures to update themselves.

Thank you Steve; this should speed up some things for me.
