I am astonished to read your reponse, you and everyone else at Autodesk keep telling people that Civil 3D is a different beast. I just recently purchased Civil 3D 2015 after spending almost $7500. I am very annoyed to know that Autodesk took few commands out which most of surveyors used very frequently, to name a few following is the list:
1. Dynamic and Static labeling of a line and curve with availibility of toolbar(Icons)
2. Label offset from building corner to the property line.
3. Drawing a Building foot-print by providing distances right or left.
4. What happened to civil toolbars where you could put several frequent commands.
Now, let me ask you why autodesk is not making these lisp routines avaiable to the customers? You can put any beast out ther as long it addreses the concerns of surveyor or engineer.
