Questions, Problems, Suggestions

Post by Tom Battey » Fri Nov 14, 2003 9:51 am

1) Do you know when the coarse/fine issue for Topcon total stations will be fixed? Doing topography in the fine mode is hurting our productivity and costing us money.
2) Is there a way for the software to operate in a search mode when using the stake line function? We would like to see the "as shot" station and offset reported after each measurement.
3) The remote height function would be more useful if we could take only 1 shot at the base and then turn to several different vertical locations and store their values.
4) Is there a way to customize the toolbar ? i.e. add function buttons
5)Is there a way to append text to the point descriptions without creating a new user defined description each time? Using LDD description keys we can control the rotation and scale of symbols by adding characters to the end of the point descriptions.

Hi Tom,

1) This is on the list of things to fix. If you manually put it in tracking mode, does FieldGenius switch it back to normal mode before it takes the shot?

2) That feature is coming soon.

3) Good point, I will add it to the feature list.

4) Currently there is no way to customize the toolbars.

5) Yes, you can add your text in the note field, and when the FBK file is created, the note will be appended to the description seperated by a space.
