If I pause moving my cursor, the alignment and profile information appears.

Re: How do I edit feature line elevations in profile view?

I kept playing around with the Inquiry Tool and I think Profile View Station and Elevation at Point is the best tool for what I am doing. It lets me click on the point in the profile and then gives me the station and elevation. I can then use that info in my elevation editor and change up elevations or move my PIs where I need them.

 

Thanks guys for the help.

Now you are just needlessly creating extra steps for yourself...

 

When you insert a new PVI by clicking on the Profile through the geometry editor, it will use the station and elevation from the Profile at that point automatically. You don't need to cut and paste from the Inquiry Tool.
