Before we are off for our well-deserved week of rest I wanted to wish you all happy holidays and all the success you need in the next year. I also wanted to share something with you that some of you may find useful.
Here the scenario. Customer wanted to add a property line to all section views and to label it in the section views. It is not uncommon to have a design where property lines, right-of-way or end of pavement needs to be shown in the section views. In the last two cases we already blogged about it in a three-series posts Vertical Markers for ROW and EOP. This time there is an easier way to show property line in multiple section views.
To fast forward it, let’s assume the Property Line is this polyline indicated by red arrow. Also assume that you also have a label set to show Property Line (I called it “TEST”).
The first step is to create a Feature Line from that property line (polyline). So let’s use “Create Feature Line from Objects” command and assign elevation if necessary.
This is half of the job, right there. Easy, right? Second part is to project it onto multiple section views. Select one Section view and from Contextual ribbon choose “Project Objects To Multiple Section Views”.
The dialog will be displayed where you can select what objects you would like to project as well as what label style to use. We used “TEST” label style for Feature Lines objects.
When finished the properly line will show up in all section views it touches.
Enjoy your holidays!
