import parcels, survey chains, lines, curves, spirals from GPK

Since GEOPAK is no longer supported. I have heard from Bentley time and time again that we can get to our data out of the GPK and import it into ORD. BUT this is only true for chains, profiles and points. What about Parcels? survey chains? lines? ...

Need 'Remove Loops' functionality to remove overlapping components/features (or 'bowties') in interior corners

Loops from end conditions are created. InRoads had a remove loops check box to prevent this, and we would like a similar feature added into ORD.

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...

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...

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...
