Breakline Editing

How should I be edting the elevations of breakline vertices in Civil 3D 2005? I can't change the values in Panorama view. I am using 3D Polylines. Thanks, Dave D.

Anyone have any ideas on this topic. I've been using Properties to scroll through each vertice but there seems like there should be an easier way. Also, I've tried converting the breakline to a feature line and editing the elevations in Panorama view, then exploding the feature line back to a polyline. The problem with this is that the initial polyline breakline gets "detached" from the surface when converting to a feature line. Is there a way to have a feature line as a breakline within a surface? Having feature lines be included as part of the surface would solve my problem. I'm not looking to use the feature lines as grading features, just breaklines. Any responses welcome. Dave D.

It seems to only *react* to grip editing of the 3DPoly. I've tried making changes to the elevations with my favorite 3DPoly editor and it doesn't react as the 3DPoly elevations change. But if you grip edit any point on the poly a bit, the model reflects those changes. Perhaps its time to whip up a Breakline editor? Terry
