profile horizontal grid

Hi,

I am setting up plans and profiles for utilities. Most of the profiles are working fine. I have one that the horizontal grids stick out about 50 feet left of the profile view. I have not been able to figure out why one is squirrely and the other are good. Any suggestions?

I'm using C3D 2012 on 64 bit system.

 

Ok.  It was one of 'those' problems!

Sounds like a padding setting.  Not sure without comparing in more detail.

I notice the red labeled "NEW 4" DW LINE" goes very slightly to the left of the 90+00 station.  That could be enough to push the grid a whole extra 50' over, depending on the settings in the profile view style.

Thanks for the input. I checked the padding & it was OK. So, I thought what the heck, I'll just close it and reopen. Apparently Civil 3D gets stressed out after a few hours of play! I exited out and reloaded C3D, reopened the drawing and the profile is doing what it is supposed to.
