Re: Point Insertion (without defined desc. key) into a Specific Layer

Awesome, thanks again... My order was right after I checked it, turns out it was a style attached to the _AllPoints group, I added this earlier trying to solve my first problem, deleted the style and its working now.

 

Now I need to figure out how to insert correctly sized trees according to description (as you can see from my pic above) the descriptions read like "trd 5.3 8", stands for Deciduous Tree (trd) 5.3" diameter at breast height by 8ft dripline, i need a deciduous tree symbol (block) inserted and scaled to the 8ft dripline at the node... Any links you suggest i read?

Description keys work the same way they did in LDD.  You can choose a parameter ($2) to use as a scale factor for the symbols.

Once again, thanks for the help, i was able to get the desc key in there for the scaled trees no problem after looking at my old file.

 

Thanks Stacy you are truly an angel!
