Removing Circle on Cross Section at Alignment Crossing in C3D 2009

I have generated cross sections along an alignment for an existing surface. For some reason, the cross sections are generated with a small magenta circle appearing at the alignment crossing (offset of 0). I can't figure out how to turn these off.

 

Anyone have any ideas?

 

Thanks in advance!

Unfortunately, the drawing is much too large to attach. I have attached a picture. The magenta circle in the middle is what I'm referring to. It seems to be connected to the grid, not the section itself (when I freeze the section layer, the circle is still present).

 

Thanks again for the help!

Have you looked at your Code Set Style?

 

(Toolspace -> Settings -> General -> Code Set Styles -> [you need to know the style you are using.]

I checked out the Code Set Styles but did not see anything about a circle in the grid.

 

The thing that is really getting to me is that the surfaces, alignments, profiles, and sample lines all have the same style for both the existing and finished grades. Yet this is only occuring on the existing grade sample line in the cross section view.

 

FYI the magenta circle looks similar to that found at Station 0+00 on stationing lines (and both of my stationing lines use the same style).

 

Thanks again for the help!

Found it!

 

For those who are having a similar issue, here is what I did:

 

Go to your alignment line and right click -> edit alignment style

 

Under the Markers tab, edit the Station Reference Point style

 

Under the Display tab, change the View Direction to Section

 

You will see a Component Type called "Marker" -- Disable the visibility

 

Bam!

 

Thanks again for the help.

I had this exact problem after, I attempted to try your soultion but it did not work in my case. I ended up just deleting the cross sections and recreating it.

Well I would like too but it came back. I made a change to the cross section style to show my annotation at the bottom and it came back, So close but no cigar.
