When placing an interior elevation marker I can make it any length I want, however after it is placed I can not adjust the ends of it to show a different width of interior elevation ? Is this how it is supposed to work ? I think we should be able to select a node on the end of the marker and adjust it to change the width of the interior elevation. ??

Select the black marker and offset the edges of the rectangle.

The situation I am talking about is for Individual Interior Elevation markers - after they have been placed either as part of an initial group or one at a time. It seems to me that the marker should be adjustable the same way an Section Marker is. I am not able to adjust Individual Interior Elevation Markers making them wider or narrower than they have been initially made. The work-around is to place a another Interior Elevation Marker that is wider. There are many reasons why they should be adjustable for width. It could be some setting I have made ?

This can be done but depends on how you select the marker and the points you stretch,

Here are a few post that discuss the problems with IE markers that should help.

I see. You have to select the hidden line of the individual interior elevation and adjust that. Rolling Eyes

This is also how you move the interior elevation markers to a different layer.
You need to select that hidden dashed line part of the marker first, and that will allow you to select a different layer to put the markers on.

It is a little mysterious - not the least bit intuitive relative to the way other elevation markers work, but I am ok with it for now. In future versions I am sure this hidden dashed line that must be selected to adjust the interior elevation and move it to a different layer will be shown anytime the marker is selected. If I had my way, this would be fixed in the next hotfix which I hope is coming out very soon.

Steve, the "Marker Range" command will toggle the visibility of those lines on and off. I keep that one in my customized tool bars at all times.

Yes the marker range helps to show this line but for me it is a fairly widely spaced dotted line and still very hard to see.
Not that I am overly worried because I don't use these interior elevations.
But does anyone know if you can change the line type used?
I don't see a setting anywhere.

Barry.

I believe it is using Line Type Attribute #4. This is Dashed in the standard setup. If you go to Attribute Manager, delete all the Line Types except 1 to 3, then import another Line Type that will become #4, it will be the limit line type.

Thanks Erich, I always have that on a tool bar too. I think this is the first time I have ever clicked that button.
