Where to define road profile/alignment settings?

For road alignments, I am trying to figure out where the controls are for your vertical information (ie. pvi sta, elev, VC etc) - specifically the VC dimension setting - the drawing is set in metric 1:500 with a 1:100 vertical (pre-defined in drawing setup), but I keep getting a dim scale override of 0.001 which makes the dimension leader disappear of course (even when I delete the override everytime in dimstyle). The style is set correctly, but I have to keep changing the override. It is driving me mental!

Any tricks how to eliminate the override or at least set up my vertical information as I actually want it?

TIA

Did you start with the imperial or the metric template? Mith the many settings buried in the styles, I've fould it difficult to switch units within a drawing. -- Karl Fuls PLS Autocad AEC Training and Consulting Autodesk Discussion Group Facilitator Deewar25 wrote: > For road alignments, I am trying to figure out where the controls are > for your vertical information (ie. pvi sta, elev, VC etc) - > specifically the VC dimension setting - the drawing is set in metric > 1:500 with a 1:100 vertical (pre-defined in drawing setup), but I > keep getting a dim scale override of 0.001 which makes the dimension > leader disappear of course (even when I delete the override everytime > in dimstyle).

Well, the specific drawing was blocked out from a drawing created probably prior cad 02, the setup is currently metric, but I can't know for sure if it was set up correctly or not. For current drawings, our templete is defaulted metric and I still do have the problems with crazy overrides! This .001 though does smell like an imperial thing though.
