This is a function for planting a row or rows with one symbol. You can add a symbol description and insert text while inserting the symbols, or you can add this information later using the 'Object menu (NCO)'.

Starting the function you will show these command prompts: Select a baseline: Pick a line, arc, polyline:<Enter> = Read from a file Select a line, lines, or polylines. The direction of the line will start at end of the first element you selected. If you press enter you will get a dialog that enables you to read an alignment from a ten table, INH file, or LIN file. Pick a line, arc, polyline/Undo: Initiation is OK (2 elements) Rows to the right or left of the baseline? Select by pointing: Point at the left or right of the line to indicate where you want the row Define what you want to do from the dialog.
Parameters for symbol placement
Before using this function you should read the topic Single. The single topic describes setting out a single plant. The description below concentrates on the parameters that differ from the topic single. The figure shows the parameters for the placement of rows.
Parallel - If this is activated the symbols will be placed in a parallel pattern (square pattern) with the given row distance and plant distance
Staggered - If this is activated the symbols will be placed in a staggered pattern (triangle pattern) with the given row distance and plant distance
Row count - Type in the number of rows you want to plant Row distance: Type in the distance you want between the rows. This value is only used if the row count is 2 or more. If your baseline contains arcs, the distance between the rows will increase in the outer curve and decrease in the inner curve. The figure shows a parallel pattern and how an arc will give a longer / shorter distance between each plant depending on the inner/outer curve. If you wish a fixed distance between plants along an arc you need to offset the baseline equivalent to the row distance and set out one row at a time. The pattern will, in some cases, be parallel and, in other cases, staggered. The figure shows a pattern defined by using parallel baselines equivalent to row distance and setting out one row at a time.
Distance baseline - The distance from the baseline to the first row of symbols.
Distance from start - The distance from the start point of the baseline to the placement of the first symbol.
Distance from end - The distance from the end point of the baseline to the placement of the last symbol.
Plant distance - Type in the distance you want between each plant.
Plants pr. row - Depending on the plant distance and the length of the baseline (and the distances from the start and end point) the function calculated the number of plants. You can also type in the number of plants you want and the function calculates the plant distance.
In addition to the parameter's rotation and size, there is one extra parameter for rows.
Use bearing of line: If this parameter is activated the symbols will be rotated with the same angle as the bearing of the baseline.
