At Linear Template corner, give option for PI or radius

When creating a liner template in a 90° corner or similar, the software would create an external tanget drop and not a rounded or chamfer one. See image attached, red flags what the result I want.

Reverse direction of an existing complex element

A tool to reverse the direction of an existing complex element. There is a workaround by complexing the complex element but not an ideal solution.

Make the Point Analyze Tool usable in Read-Only files

You can't use the Analyze Point tool on read-only files presumably because it is trying to add annotation but sometimes people just want to check measurements such as slope between geometry in a read-only files and this is a very useful tool to do...

Equilateral turnouts as a separate element with its own geometry for both main and deviating track

Currently, in order to create en equilateral turnout, one needs to recreate one of the branches (with exact geometry) and then add the branch part. This process has a lot of inconsistencies and sometimes results in unexpected geometries ( transiti...

Implement Civil Accudraw for Dynamic Cross Section View

Similar to the plan and profile Civil Accudraw, it would be useful to have a tool to be able to view offset, elevation, and slope in the cross section interface. This is desired in the dynamic cross section view, where users could actively utilize...

Annotate Horizontal length along straight on profile

Requirement is to annotate horizontal length of straight on profile (station end - station start). It is available in frame annotation but not along linear so annotations don't match. Only the slope length can be annotated along the linear

Ability to define the slope of any points within the dynamic section using the measure tools

Having the ability to quickly check both existing and design crossfall/superelevation would increase efficiency within the program as there would be no requirement to run a template and report to evaluate existing cross slopes

Coupling between horizontal and vertical regrerssion lines

A very problematic area is the coupling between horizontal and vertical regression analysis. Generally speaking, one must create a horizontal regression line first, create regressed elements, couple them together in a complex geometry and then pro...

Vertical curve from element with outgoing slope

When creating vertical curves "from element" it would be really useful to be able to set the outgoing slope (I have not been successful using "civil accudraw" for this purpose...).

Ability to export and import all corridor objects such as point controls to enable rebuilding of corridors

I know parametric constraints can be exported but if a corridor becomes corrupt then being able to rebuild it from scratch easily would be useful. Similar to an input file in MX
