Use this function to change the appearance of selected AutoCAD lines or Novapoint objects to a desired drawing setup for the centerline (pre-defined or user-defined).

When the command is started the dialog box 'Draw Horizontal Alignments' will pop up. You have three options to select input to make the centerline:

File

The dialog box 'Select TenTable' will pop up. Select the file format at the field 'File of Type', browse to the desired file, and click 'Open'.

Multiple alignments can be selected by holding the 'Shift' or 'Ctrl' keys.

After you have made the line with one of the options above, the line is drawn.

Select the configuration from the pull-down menu to change the appearance of the line and click 'OK'.
