Symbols for drainage/Slope

Can LDT 2006 automatically create those little slope drainage lines on the
sides of levee banks in my plan or do I have to create them manually and
array or copy?

In my experience with LDT 2K6 - and DynBlks of course - I'm fairly sure that
I either actually created/planned the creation of a DynBlk to handle that
KelWeg.

My preferred Block took on the shape of:

\ /
|

Where the lower portion of the "Y" was the Stretch-able portion of the
DynBlk.

And the upper portion could also be allowed to Shrink/Expand as Slopes went
through successive revisions.

Does that sound along the lines of what you might be after?

Pun intended. ;-)

Hi KelWeg
1. Possibly, a user defined slope range would do it for you?
2. You could make a temporary boundary around your levee to only show the
slope arrows you want.
3. Check out Don's advice

Yes that will work. I just wanted to be sure that there was not already a
symbol inside of LDT like the break-line symbol inside of Express tools.
