    Default Cannot Create EG Surface profile Using Data Shortcut

    Hi,
    I am using Civil 3D 2014 and have made a reference to an existing ground surface using a data shortcut. When I use the Create Surface Profile command using an alignment create in my current drawing I don't get a profile. Is this not something I can do using 2014? Or is there a setting that I need to change? I see online that there is a DREF option that I cannot seem to find.

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Thanks.

    What do you mean that "you don't get a profile"?

    Do you see the name of the DREF surface in the dialog?

    I did an Audit and found 3 errors, then I saved and reopened the drawing file and now everything works correctly. Thank you for your reply.
