show locations of cross section sample lines on profile view

hello everyone,

can anyone recommend a good way to indicate the location of cross section sample lines in a profile view (of same alignment) as vertical lines? the sample lines have been created at user defined locations from polylines, and do not follow a particular station order. my first thought was to use transparent command to draw line in profile view using station from plan view, but i have in excess of 100 cross sections, and that may be time consuming. I am wondering if there is a quicker way to do this. thanks!

Check the Display Tab of your Profile View Style. There is a light bulb for Grid at Sample Line Stations.
