    Default Grading Objects - Point Creation

    I am a newbie and trying to follow the Grading Object tutorial on a 'real' project. When I use the menus: Create Points-Slope > Slope/Grade-Distance to start from a first point with an elevation of 133.0, the elevation on the point created comes using a starting elevation of 0.0. I can't seem to figure out how to force it to use the actual point info? I think is some basic concept but I am out of ideas and google searches! Thanks for any thoughts.

    It's been a long time since I used LDT. Try typing 'g prior to picking the first point. That will toggle on the "pick points Graphically" selection method and it should read the elevation of the point. You could also use the 'xy AutoCAD filter, pick the point and type in the elevation (z value).

    Like I said it's been a long time.

    I think it's dot g (.g) not apostrophe g ('g).

    Thanks Jeff - I will try that. I also realized that the tutorial said to specifically use the 'Node Onsap" which of course I was not doing and this allowed me to get set the point elevatiosn correctly. Another case of 'loose nut' on the keyboard.
