Chainage

To toggle Chainage, select the tab Horizontal Drawing.

This option refers to chainage along the design line (graphical alignment in the current/vertical drawing). Mark the check box and define the chainage interval. If this option is not active, only tangent points will be having the chainage. The default chainage interval is 100.0m.

Slope Signature

Terrain

To toggle Terrain, select the tab Horizontal Drawing.

If the terrain is disabled, it will not be displayed or recalculated when the horizontal alignment changes and there will be no longitudinal terrain profile on the vertical drawing.

This might reduce calculating/processing time while working with long alignments.

Tip: Double-click the field TERRAIN on the status bar of the user interface to toggle terrain calculation and presentation in the vertical drawing.
