When a Polyline, or multiple Polylines are selected the SELECTION - TOOLS menu will be available. The SELECTION - TOOLS menu contains tools that allow you to edit, change styling, annotate, or perform advanced functions on your selected Polyline(s). The menu dynamically adjust the tools available depending on your item selection, with additional tools available for selecting more than 1 Polyline.


Individual Polyline selection


Multiple Polyline selection


Styling group

IconNameDescription
LineAllows you to change the Polyline(s) color.
ThicknessAllows you to change the Polyline(s) thickness.


Annotate group

IconNameDescription
-
NamePolyline(s) Descriptor & Number displayed over the Polyline(s) in the Viewport.
-
ElevationN/A (Only available for usage with Point items).
-
VolumeN/A (Only available for usage with Volume items).
LabelAllows you to change the Polyline(s) Label color.
SizeAllows you to change the Polyline(s) Label size.


Edit group

IconNameDescription
On TerrainEnables Edit mode for selected Polyline. On Terrain will ensure the selected or created Polyline vertex is placed onto the underlying terrain, adjusting the XY & Z as the vertex is moved or created. 
XYEnables Edit mode for selected Polyline. XY will only adjust the horizontal axis of the selected or created vertex, maintaining the same Z level it started with when moved or created. You will notice a "orange hatched" plane created when moving the item that helps to display the location at which the vertex will be placed on that plane.
ZEnables Edit mode for selected Polyline. Z will only adjust the Z axis of the selected vertex, maintaining the same X & Y the vertex started with. When moving the vertex a orange "ray" or line will display perpendicularly to the terrain showing the Z axis the vertex can be moved along.
-
XDisplays the current X coordinate for the selected vertex, but also allows you to directly type in a coordinate to move the vertex to on it's X axis when On Terrain or XY are the selected edit mode.
-
YDisplays the current Y coordinate for the selected vertex, but also allows you to directly type in a coordinate to move the vertex to on it's Y axis when On Terrain or XY are the selected edit mode.
-
ZDisplays the current Z coordinate for the selected vertex, but also allows you to directly type in a coordinate to move the vertex to on it's Z axis when Z is the selected edit mode.


Transform group

IconNameDescription
To TerrainSelected Polyline(s) will be draped to the underlying Elevation terrain by changing their Z value to the same elevation as the Z level of the terrain at their XY location. 
SplitEnables Split mode. Polylines can now be split into separate Polyline items by left-mouse clicking at your desired split location along a selected Polyline.

Result: Polyline
To BoundarySelected polyline(s) will be transformed into a Boundary item. Line segments between the gaps of the Polyline(s) will be automatically filled in to complete the Boundary and original Polyline items will be removed.

Result: Boundary
DensifySelected Polyline(s) will become more complex by adding vertices to them that drape the Polyline(s) to the underlying terrain. Densify has 2 methods of adding vertices, Break Points & Regular. Breakpoints will add vertices by elevation change along the Polyline according to the Elasticity, while Regular will add vertices at the specified Distance. All vertices created will always drape onto the underlying Elevation terrain.
Merge PolylinesMerges separate Polyline items into a single Polyline item. The Polylines must have endpoints that overlap on each other in order to merge. (Only available for use when more than 1 line is selected)

Result: Polyline


Create group

IconNameDescription
Section LinesCreates a set of Polylines along the trajectory of selected Polyline(s) into a unified layer. Polylines created will be spaced perpendicular along the selected Polyline at designated regular intervals. The spacing is controlled by the Along box. The width of the intersecting Polylines can also be set via the Across box.

Result:Polyline(s)
Extract PointsCreates Point items at every vertice of the selected Polyline(s).

Result:Point(s)
