For a few releases now, the View/Edit Corridor Section tools have been a bit tough to use. The cosmetics were difficult to control, you couldn’t really zoom or do any easy naviagtion. I’m happy to report that this interface has been improved for Civil 3D 2009.
You have three new zooming options: Zoom Extents; Zoom to Offset and Elevation; Zoom in on a Subassembly. Zoom to Subassembly is particularly cool. It gives you a drop down selection so you can find the subassembly that is “misbehaving” or needs some tweaks.
Also, you now have more/easier control over the grid that you see.
This one you can actually do in 2008, but most people don’t realize it. You can change the command setting for View/Edit Corridor Section to use your preferred Code Set Style.
Lots more neat stuff to come! Back to Mastering…
