Join Dustin Manning for an in-depth discussion in this video Point properties and display styles, part of AutoCAD Civil 3D: Topographic and Boundary Survey.
- [Instructor] Regardless of which method you choose to use,…either drawing managed or survey database,…the easiest way to see information about your point…is to bring up your properties palette.…The properties palette is located on the Home tab…in the bottom right of the Palette panel.…A shortcut to get there is Ctrl + 1 on the keyboard.…When we click that, the menu pops up.…And by default, we'll see that there's no selection;…but if we select a point, it will repopulate…with all the information about the point.…
Most important being at the very bottom,…you'll see Geometry; and we get our Easting…and Northing coordinate plus the point elevation.…And the one key thing to remember…if you're using the survey database…is if you try to edit those, you won't be able to.…To edit a point that's in a survey database,…we would go back to the Import Event in the survey database,…expand that import event out, and click on Survey Points.…From here, if I hover in the middle of that bar,…I can click and drag up…so that I can get all the information here.…
