I would like to draw a smiple line using the transparent command 'AD (angle-distance).

My distance is not horz., so I want to enter the Vertial angle and the slope-distance,

in LLD the command was AD VD.


So how do you do this in Civil 3D 2012,

You can do this in a survey database with the survey command window.  The survey command line uses the same field book commands that LDD had.  You can create the line with figure commands and the AD VA or AD VD field book command.


The survey command window can be opened by right-clicking on a network name in a survey database.  The database must be opened for editing.
