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. ??

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. :roll:

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.
