I've been using the COGOEditor in civil 3D 2012. I enter a description for each entry. The description does not get saved. If i open the traverse file using a text editor, enter a description, save it, then reopen in COGOEditor, I still dont see any descriptions.
Is there something im missing? is there a bug?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Solved! by machadt. See the answer in context.
It is confirm and we are working on it already, just to let you know
Not previously familiar with the COGOEDITOR, but I can essentially confirm what you are describing. I can enter the description for the traverse entries and save the traverse file, and then view the descriptions in the traverse file with Notepad. But if I close and reopen the editor, then load the traverse file, the descriptions for each traverse do not get displayed. So this does appear to be a problem, and if nobody else has an idea perhaps you want to make Autodesk aware of the issue. I know that my observations do not really help, but just thought I would confirm your findings.
You should be able to update the description information using the Survey Panorama Vista too.
Please send me your survey database and I will gladly take a look at it.
Thanks for the replies.
I think it's a useful tool already, with descriptions it will be even better. It's easier to troubleshoot a traverse when you have descriptions to work with.
Looking forward to seeing it updated in the future.
While Autodesk is working on the issue of losing Descriptions, please consider fixing the two other issues I spoke of in my previous post, being as Follows:
1. Please facilitate rapid data entry (in the Panorama) by allowing the ENTER key advance to the next field so the users can enter Survey Observations just using the 10 key numberic pad just as in Land Desktop.
2. Please fix Auto Point numbering when entering Observations. This issue has been verbally confirmed by phone call per [CaseNo:06783674.]
