I located a sidewalk next to a curb line. i coded them the same way. when i import the points my sidewalk auto draws but my curb line does not. i have another curb line that I didn't even code for autolinework and it draws. the curb I want drawn is BC the other curb that autodraws is coded BC1. any ideas?

If your using BC and the linework code set has the linework code for a begin curve as BC that's is you problem, change the linework codeset to PC & PT for the begin and end curve, and all should work. OOTB these codes are set as BC & EC, so if you description macthes these, that is the problem.

I'm using BL for begin, EL for end and OC for on curve. Here is a screen shot.

You were correct. I had BC for begin curve. I changed it to PC and now it works. Thanks.

Yes, but when you use the BL you should be using the linework code for your begin curve instead, since you using OC you telling it to start a curve, where BL is but BL is being used to start a Line not a curve, see the edit to my previous message. There will be issues with using BC as back of curb, and BC as begin curve
