Control file

Post by ergols1727 » Tue Mar 23, 2004 8:04 am

Is there a way to set a file as a control file when you're creating a new file? When subdivision stake-out is done, either for housing or barring, we start with a file that has several design points in it. We would like to create a new file and bring into it only those points required for stake-out work, not the entire design file. Is there a way of specifying a certain type of file as a control file only? If not, can we somehow bring in either individual points from another file or a range of points from another file?

The current version of FieldGenius doesn't have a concept of control files. In the next version we're looking at providing a similar type of file to do exactly what you've described.
