Zoom to a Station on an Alignment?

anyone know if this can be done...in a simple manner.

Like entering a station and going there?

 

I've used the 'SO with Zoom C. That is not simple.

 

12+ miles of a single road alignment with 3 equation stations makes for a LOT of panning.

 

Thanks...

Now that would be a nice feature!

 

For long alignments, the easiest way I know is to create a single sample line, edit the sample line station value, and then zoom to the sample line from Prospector.  It is still a few clicks but maybe better than zoom pan etc.

 

Another possibility is named views - to cover specfici locations / station ranges.

 

I agree - zoom to station is a much needed functionality.

Grab ZOOMSTA.ZIP in the Free Stuff section of the site below and give it a try.  Two separate commands, ZOOMALI selects the current alignment and ZOOMSTA simply prompts for a station.
