Hello everybody I hope you have a good day!


I would like to ask Is it possible to Split an Alignment and making each one independent?

Yes. Two ways avaliable (easy & hard)


1. Copy and paste then edit, however you will copy any corridors etc which are linked to the alignment. Landxmlout/in to new drawing will solve this.



2. hard method, Hacking.

You will probably end up / require an overlap if you split where you get curves.


If on a straight add a new PVI where you want to split then export to landxml. Edit and duplicate the alignment section, rename the new alignment and delete the elements from the PVI or curve that you dont want in either direction.


If you have profiles you will need to edit these as well.


But to be honest It would probably be quicker to copybase / pasteclip into a new drawing and edit in there.
