I've got a profile view created with one surface and I would like to add a different tin surface...and keep the one surface already on it

thanks!

"Draw in profile view" does not need to be selected.  It will just show up.

Sample the new surface, it should automatically show up in the existing PV.

Profile - Create Profile from Surface

Then select the same centreline as the centreline in the profile you want to add the new surface

Select the surface you want to add and then add

Select draw in profile view and its there now just cancel out of the rest and done.
