There needs to be an easier way to input information for pipes and structures! People like me, that have problems with our attention span or A.D.D. need help.
This bouncing around, clicking here, modifying over here, double checking back here, then going over here, just kills me!
Why can't we just click on a structure or pipe and pick "Edit" and a nice clean dialogue box pop up and let us change rims, flowlines, etc right there in the drawing.
How come to change the flow line of a structure, we need to edit the pipe. If they are all connected as a network, we should be able to adjust the connection at the structure and it should automatically update the pipe.
Please, simplify this madness!
Actually, you can do most of what you're asking for.
Select a structure or pipe, right-click, and select "structure properties" or "pipe properties".
In the structure properties box, you can click on the "connected pipes" tab to adjust the pipes entering the structure. Or you can drag things up and down in the pipe profile view.
It's still not as user-friendly as I would like, but it's not as bad as you think it is.
When I do have to modify pipes, I use this tool from the SincPac: http://quuxsoft.com/SincpacC3D_Help/SP_PipeElevati
