All civil tools display on-screen prompts, which accept the inputs needed to create each element.
Example, Line Between Points
1. The first prompt is for the start point of the line, which is shown next to the cursor.
2. The second prompt is for the end point, which is again shown next to the cursor.
Dynamic feedback is displayed while you are creating elements. It is another way of providing useful information while maintaining focus on the work. Providing this information as you are creating elements helps you make better design decisions in a shorter time.
Example, Arc by Points
Notice the dynamic feedback showing the arc radius, the arc length, and the center point while creating the arc.
