Automap Library

Post by jmahun » Wed Jul 26, 2006 5:44 pm

I want to create a custom Automap library for use in my classes. I understand the basics of adding user defined codes to an existing library and I am able to change attributes for different descriptions. What I'd like to know is if there's a way to add more markers to the 27 defined types? Are the marker definitions in a seperate file which can be modified?
I notice in both the survey.csv and mscad.csv files, the fourth field is named Symbol. Any entries there have a .flx extension. Are these for use by MSCAD software when bringing in a project? Do they have an effect on the markers used in FieldGenius?

The marker attributes in FieldGenius are hard coded into the software and there is no option to add more to the list.

The symbol field in the .csv file is only used by our desktop software. The symbol field tells our AutoMap system to insert a block into the drawing when the FieldGenius project is imported.

Let us know if you have any other questions.
