Cross Sections

Hope I'm using the right DG this time.  Anyway, here goes...


I'm using AutoCAD Civil 3D Land Desktop Companion 2009.  When using the "Section Plot" > "All" menu, all my cross sections line up to the left in one column.  Is there any way for them to line up from the center?  That way when looking up the column, the centerline and stationings are in a row.


Thank you,

Under the Cross Sections pull down, you'll need to explore the plotting settings.  There's settings for both the cross sections and the page layout.  I belive that the sections are inserted using the block that contains the section title and they align off of that.  I'm not sure you can get them to align to the alignment CL.


Play with both settings to get them close to what you need.
