We are now working in civil 3D 2011, and have started using the .txt files now instead of the fieldbooks of the past. I have created a Description key set, along with a figure prefix database and a linework code set. everything works fine as long as the field crews use EP1, EP,2 EP3, ETC.. But we would really like to utilize the Begin and End function of this. I have unchecked the box that says Automatic begin on figure prefix match, but still no luck. I have also checked the linework code set and it all looks good <Space> delimiter etc.., any help would be greatly appreciated thanks.
yeah, i have tried using the B EP or E EP, but When i import the .txt file in it does not draw the linework. like i said if i have the box checked automatic begin on figure prefix match and use EP1, EP2 ETC.. it works fine. but we do not want to change the description everytime we need to break a line.

Not sure if it is just a typo in your post, but the linework codes need to be entered after the point codes: EP B and EP E.
