Profile help

When I alter a surface profile, whether it's the title, gridlines, etc..., it just doesn't do it to the selected profile;  it applies the changes to all of my profiles.  The changes are made even to ones created with a different alignment.


How can I make changes to just 1 profile?  And leave the others as they are...

you seem to be confusing the profile with the profile view.   in order for different profile views to have different settings, you need to make a copy of the profile view style and rename it to something else then assign that new profile view style to the profile view.

Yes, I agree.  When you are editing, look at the top of the dialogue box.  It tells you that you're editing a Profile View Style, and gives the name of the Style.  All Profile Views that are set to that style will look the same.


Click on a Profile View and right-click, go to Profile View Properties.  There you have the option to choose a different style for that Profile View.

Credit where credit is due! Give kudos or accept as solution whenever you can.
