Just updated my alignment by erasing several hundred feet from the beginning. Looked at a plot and the profile didn't update. Checked status of profile and it said static and surface imported from LDD had disappeared.
Profile had been dynamic last month.
Is it a feature that if a surface is accidently erased, the associated profiles switch to static?
Anybody have any clues?
Yes, that is correct. If the surface that a profile is dependent on is not available any more, the profile changes to static mode. As Joe observed, the other alternative would have been to delete the profile when the surface is deleted.
If the surface is available in the drawing again you may be able to change the profile back to dynamic mode.
I tried toggling the profiile back to dynamic when I brought the surface back in. It wouldn't give me the option. Wish list for 2013?
Next wish list item - Big warning - eleting the surface will convert profile to static" if a surface is to be erased from a file.
I must have deleted the surface by accident.
I did. I fixed the problem.
I prefer the profile to go to static rather than be deleted. I just prefer a warning before deleting a surface with a profile attached.
Could which profiles, etc. that are using the surface be added to the properties information?
I think that would be a very helpful additiona in 2013
