If I draw lines between nodes and then list the lines it gives me slope distances. how can I set it to draw 2D lines but still have 3D nodes? I want my points to display the correct elevation but when I draw lines connecting them I want the line to be 2D so when I list them I get the correct bearing and a horizontal distance.
Set OSNAPZ = 1. This will allow you to snap to the nodes and ignore the Z value. Note that this setting is not saved and defaults to 0.
Another option: use polylines instead. They will never draw in 3D.
However, they WILL draw at the elevation of the first point.
