Property Line Creation

When you are creating Property Lines for your site in your model, the default out of the box settings for the Property Line creation can be a little confusing, especially if you are creating them by entering distances and bearings.

The table you are greeted with will only let you enter bearing distances between 0° and 90°, as its forms the Property Lines using compass quadrant points and locates the lines in each quadrant….it is a little confusing, but there is an easier way to enter this information. (Even explaining it is a little confusing!)

If you select the little arrow besides the Model Site heading, you will be taken into the Site Settings dialog box. Change the Angle Display setting to Degrees.

This will alter the Property Lines dialog box, so that the method for entering the data will just use the distance and bearing, and not the quadrant method.
