So if you know that little trick,…you can make this really easy,…as compared to having to go in…and select each individual pipe…or structure.…Or to draw a poly-line manually down the centers…of the structures and create an alignment out of that.…If you know this workflow, this approach…of selecting one structure, launching the command,…and selecting the last one,…the software will do all the heavy lifting,…and the meticulous work of picking…each structure and pipe along the way.…So now I can press enter,…
