Sheet Views


The Profile Display system creates the profile view region of an improvement sheet and provides tools for easy manipulation of the appearance. The process involves attaching the ASE-generated profile drawing as an XREF, creating an array of viewports in a layout tab, adjusting the station range of the profile, and fine-tuning the visibility and position of each profile component (L2, L1, CL, R1 & R2). The entire process is managed via ASE Civil's menus and toolbars.
