I'm looking into a reliable Survye Module and i have been evaluating Carlson these past couple of days. I do have some questions though.
-First off why are the points not dynamic and you need to write back and forth into an external crd file? Like you move a point, you have to update the crd. You add somethign to the crd, you have to redraw the points. In civil3d these things happen automatically. Like you move a point the databse is instanly notified and rewritten.
-When i need to define a polyline to setup a deed, how can i name it with Characters instead of numbers? Lets say i draw a 5 sided closed polyline and i update the CRD based on that entity. Instead of it being called 1-2-3-4-5-1 i want it to be called A-B-C-D-E-A.
-Can you use database fields inside the dialogs? I like to include the square meters of an area on the center of my polyline. Theres an option to label a polyline in Carlson but inside the options for that command you can set the label of what it will say. Instead of plain text, i want it to display the area, and be dynamic as well. So if i move/edit vertices it will refreash and display the new area
-When i draw the points table, i have trouble arranging the size of the table. I have the standards of what my table is supposed to look like, but how do i apply inside the dialog, still cant figure it out.
-I also find text sizes appear small. I set metric on project settings with horiznal scale of "200" but text are almost half of what they should appear. Is there any good documentation of how to handle that?
