Civil 3D – Point Style Browse from Editor Tip

Ok, this isn’t rocket science, but some people don’t know about this.

If you want to assign a block to represent the point style, but it does not exist in the drawing, you can insert it without leaving the Style Editor.

Right Click in the Block list, and the ‘Browse…’ option will appear.  Select it, and Windows Explorer will let you navigate to the location, and insert the block you select.  This is a really nice feature.

Civil 3D – Don’t forget the Field Book in Group Sorting

Ever get frustrated by the HUGE list of point groups you have developed in that 2 year + project?  Survey guys a bit overzealous with the Groups?  Reordering them is time consuming, but you can sort them in the Toolspace item view.

Simply click on the header of your choice.  The application will alternately sort the collection by Ascending, Descending, and Current Group Order each time you pick it.  One thing I like to do up is to list my Field Book data first thing in the description field.  Then I can sort by field book as well.

You can sort by Name, Description, Style, Label Style, Number of Points, and Classification.  I can see using classification in the various sorting and collections coming in handy as well.

Ok, back to my Part Builder topics……
