Having control over an item number can be important in many cases. With Virtual Surveyor there are two ways to manage items numbering. You can use the layer numbering editor available in the Structure group of the HOME tab or you can do a right mouse click in the project view to access the numbering editor through the contextual menu.

Usage

  • The most common example is when you are working with volume piles and need to assign a specific number to each pile or remove numbers from items if desired.
  • You can also use the numbering to do survey dates management. Nevertheless, Peak users favor using the terrain state manager to do so. 
  • To avoid issues when importing data into your CAD solution, give a single number to all the project items. Multiple renumbering is useful for that use case. 


Tips and tricks

  • It's possible to turn off numbering. If you don't want that newly created items carry a number, then simply deselect the checkbox next to the Next Number box in the Structure group.

  • Virtual Surveyor allows duplicates numbers.
