    Default How do I control the Layers of the Elevation Table of a Volume Surface

    For a volume surface, I can produce an Elevation Table like this, I'm sure we are all familiar with.

    I'm suppose to have the following control over layers

    The problem I'm experiencing is that the Colored Squares (Red -> yellow -> Green) are being associated with a different layer (My companies BORDER layer)
    They only plot in color when that layer's plot style is set to color. I want that layer's plot style to be black, so those squares are plotting black.

    How do I put those little squares on a different layer?

    Thanks.

    What layer is the table assigned?

    How do I find that out? I click on it, and it's on the 0 layer.

    If the table as inserted into the drawing is reporting it is on layer 0, I'm not sure how it is referencing the BORDER layer you stated earlier.

    Are you plotting based CTB or STB styles? I'm assuming STB as you are referring to the Plot Style. You might create a new layer with the correct plot style settings and then assign the table to this new layer. Hopefully, this will resolve your issue.

    When you say Assign the table to the new layer, You mean just select it and change it's layer in the properties window?

    Thanks

    Those colors are assigned in the surface properties
    Analysis Tab
    Elevations
    Range Details
    Click there to change the colors
