Tip #3 : Field Book Visualization
Given the different settings and options contained within the style files from InRoads, GEOPAK, and MX, importing these to populate the Feature Styles inherently caused compromises in the Survey styles. The major style feature overlaps between the InRoads, GEOPAK, and MX style files have been included in the Survey styles, but some of the more subtle options for annotation contained within each of the formats are not yet supported.
Use Survey to import and manipulate field data, and if the visualization does not correspond closely enough to the expected output, export the completed data to the appropriate COGO file and re-vizualize the data in the native product.
This methodology will provide all the advantages the new software brings and the visualization you are accustomed to.
