    Default Show Pipes at Crossing and Label Inverts

    Summary: I'd like the ability to show the pipe where it actually crosses another pipe as well as label inverts at any location of the pipe I choose in plan view.

    Description: The additional data will help insure preliminary design goes quickly. If users could label inverts without having to draw featurelines it would be more efficient. If the crossings shown in profile view could reflect pipe crossing, rather than where it crosses a center-line profile it would help. The ability to list crossing elevations and clearance in table format would be great.

    Hey Brian,

    I understand exactly what you're after. The problem is that a profile view can only be associated with one alignment. This relegation means that any crossing you want to show in said profile view must in fact cross the parent alignment.

    How I show all critical, non-alignment crossings in my profile views, is to copy the crossing parts from their intersection of another alignment, or part, perpendicular to the parent alignment, and apply a crossing style I created which does not plot in plan view but does in profile view.

    It's unfortunate that such a work around is necessary, but if you're not already doing this, you might start while we wait for this excellent wish to be granted.

    Cheers

    I would just be happy with being able to pick a pipe and at the location be given the top and bottom of said pipe.
