anyone know if this can be done...in a simple manner.
Like entering a station and going there?
I've used the 'SO with Zoom C. That is not simple.
12+ miles of a single road alignment with 3 equation stations makes for a LOT of panning.
Now that would be a nice feature!
For long alignments, the easiest way I know is to create a single sample line, edit the sample line station value, and then zoom to the sample line from Prospector. It is still a few clicks but maybe better than zoom pan etc.
Another possibility is named views - to cover specfici locations / station ranges.
I agree - zoom to station is a much needed functionality.
Grab ZOOMSTA.ZIP in the Free Stuff section of the site below and give it a try. Two separate commands, ZOOMALI selects the current alignment and ZOOMSTA simply prompts for a station.
