Create Geometry by Template

Used to access the Pick Template dialog then insert the chosen template into the drawing relative to a reference element.

You can access this tool from the following:

  • Ribbon: Geometry > Horizontal > Complex Geometry split button
Use the Create Geometry by Template tool to access the Pick Template dialog then insert the chosen template into the drawing relative to a reference element. Any point in the template, whose feature definition is set to create geometry, will produce offset element constructions at the template defined offset.
  1. Open the Civil Tools task pane to the Horizontal Geometry section then click the Create Geometry by Template between Elements icon.

  2. When you move the cursor into the View, it is equipped with a command prompt requesting that you "Locate Reference Element", so move the cursor to the element to which you wish to apply the template then data point, example, left-click.

    • The Create Template Drop Geometry dialog opens.

    • Checking the box next to any of the fields locks in the associated value.

  3. When prompted to Select Template, you must hold down the Alt key and strike the down arrow key to open the Pick Template dialog.

  4. When the dialog opens, navigate the tree to choose from the available templates then click OK and data point in the View.

Note: The Select Template command prompt retains your last selection, so if you wish to apply multiple instances of the same template, you need only data point when the populated prompt appears.
