Vertical Curves and bands in a profile

197 Views, 6 Replies

So....I'd like to have my verical curve elevations show up in my band at 25' intervals and the remaining portion of the profile (tangents) show up as 50' intervals.  .  Currently, my band is set up for 50' intervals for tangents but a certain town's requirement is that all vertical curve elevations be shown at 25' intervals.

 

Help!

I'm up against the same problem... Posts I've read from 2009 basicaly say "no can do"... that was 5 years ago.  Has this been resolved?

I'm not sitting at my computer, but I'm pretty sure this is possible. Create 2 band styles; one for just tangents, the other for curves. Add both bands, setting the frequency as you wish. Set the gap for the lower band as a negative number so they overlap, appearing as a single band.

Uhg, I'm trying to do this now....and I can't see the option I thought there was.  Sorry, I can't see a way to make this happen easily.

Yeah.  I tried this out as well.  No dice.  I think my only option here is to either show ALL 25' elevations, or make a 2nd band at 25' and *gasp* explode it and copy over the text into the profile view for those spots with vertical curves.
