I've looked at all the responses to this so far, and it seems like most of you are asking for the application PLINEGEN to EG and Superimposed profiles, not FG profiles. My thinking is that FG profiles usually don't have those small segments that make it look continuous in places when the PLINEGEN setting is not applied. Is that correct? Ofcourse, you can still apply a line type to the FG profile, just that PLINEGEN would not apply... -- Himanshu Gohel. Civil3D Team, Autodesk, Inc.

Hi Himanshu, You are probably right, the FG profiles USUALLY don't have the small segments but, why limit their versatility? Is it that much more difficult to program the FG plinegen than the EG plinegen? Why not just do them all and let the user decide how they would look best? -- Brian Hailey LDT2005 C3D2005 XP Pro - SP 2 P4 2.8GHz 1.00 GB of RAM > I've looked at all the responses to this so far, and it seems like most of > you are asking for the application PLINEGEN to EG and Superimposed > profiles, > not FG profiles.

Hey Himanshu; In seconding Brian's motion, I will put forth the suggestion that it will likely occur to us (probably sooner rather than later) to use FG profiles to identify Future conditions as well, and so we would find the ability to use either simple or complex linetypes a necessity. -- Don Reichle Hacker Engineering, Inc.

Keep in mind Don, that you can already assign line types to all profiles in C3D by editing the profile style and setting the lintype and linetype scale appropriately. The issue is only with regard to PLINEGEN, i.e. an AutoCAD setting for PLINEs to indicate that the linetype pattern should continue across vertices. -- Himanshu Gohel. Civil3D Team, Autodesk, Inc.

Yes, I realize that, Himanshu, and I still agree that whatever linetype we assign should appear continuous through the vertices, and not stop and start at each one. This would especially be true for the complex linetypes with embedded text. -- Don Reichle Hacker Engineering, Inc.
