    Default Swap surfaces in volume surfaces

    Summary: The ability to swap out surfaces in a volume surface

    Description: Sometimes a surface name might change and if a volume surface has already been labeled with surface band elevations, there is no option to swap out a surface in order to keep the labels. I wish there was a way to swap out the old surface with the new surface and keep all tables and labels intact.

    Another method currently available would be to create two dummy surfaces for the base and comparison surfaces. Within these dummy surfaces, paste the desired surface for each type. Then make your volume surface referencing the two dummy surfaces.
    If you have a technical question, please find the appropriate forum and ask it there.
    You will get a quicker response from your fellow AUGI members than if you sent it to me via a PM or email.

    Yep, that's a good work around until an easier solution is available. Thanks for the idea!
