drawing line in profile view

I'm look for a transparent command or command to draw a vertical line (or profile) at a know point and a vertical distance using the profile view. Example would be a curb&gutter, or a wall footing.


Note: In LDD I use length and elevation differents.

There are 4 different profile view commands on the transparent command tool bar Joe mentioned above. You can also type the commands when being promted for a point ('PSE, 'PGS, 'PGE & 'PGL).
