Having an Undo & Redo button for the Table Editor

Sometimes mistakes happen. Rather than closing out of the window and waiting for ORD to undo the mistake, the "Undo/Redo" button would make the design process all little smoother. The button won't end mistakes but it sure beats having to close out...

Snapping to arc/spiral end in profile

I would highly recommend to let user to snap to arc or spiral end in profile design. As you can see in the attached video I can't find intersection between profile alignment and vertical line that indicates arc/spiral end. To find intersection b...

Drawing layout from right to left - plan and profile.

Fundamental convention for technical drawing demands that the north arrow point to the top of the page. Often an alignment either provided by a client or already exiting will progress from right to left. This being said, when creating plan and pro...

Separate vertical alignment model from horizonal geometry

One of my biggest pain points about ORD is if the horizontal geometry is dropped or broken, the vertical is consequently lost as well. This creates significant rework from a design and plan production standpoint (connected named boundaries). One w...

Ability to append, join, or combine individual alignments and have it hold the sub alignment stationing, which would create station equations

In Geopak, we had the ability to take individual alignments and create an overall alignment from a subset of alignments and it would hold the individual stationing for each alignment, creating station equations. There is no way to do this in ORD u...

Make the Geometry Copy Element tool clone / duplicate an element with all rules, etc.

Currently the Copy Element tool either fail to copy, copies elements incomplete (with missing Vertical Geometry) or does not reproduce rules as intended. The Geometry Copy Element command should effectively be a cloning tool that copies everything...

Line and Curve Tables for both Alignments and Parcels

Need tools for creating Line and Curve tables with smarts. Geopak D&C had a tool for creating line and curve tables. Why doesn't OpenRoads have tools for this? Needs to be smart so that as changes are made to the geometry the data in the table...

Compound Curve with Spiral Segments Tool

A geometry tool is needed to easily create a Compound Horizontal Curve with Spiral segments. Having the ability to quickly compute a Spiral-Curve-Spiral-Curve-Spiral between two tangents would be greatly beneficial to the track design work we do. ...

Add "Set Feature Definition" Tool to the Feature Definition Tool Bar

The "Set Feature Definition" Tool should be added to the Feature Definition Tool Bar rather than having to go digging around to find it. It coincides with "Match Feature Definition" which is already part of the tool bar.
