Change Elevations (ChaEle)
Type: Interactive Application
Changes entity elevations.
Interactively changes entity elevations based on the current Z source elevation. Entities to be edited are identified by pointing at them. Elevations may be displayed in the graphics windows and many edit functions such as increment and decrement may be performed.
What is the difference between Edit Elevations and Change Elevations?
Edit Elevations drives the 3D device to the points that are occupied. Change Elevations moves the point elevation to the current input elevation when a point is occupied. Change Elevations may be more useful when editing line elevations from a 3D input device such as a stereo plotter or softcopy. Change Elevations may also be more useful when editing elevations that are a great distance from the current elevation as with lines with a zero elevation.
NOTE: The current point elevation is modified when the entity is locked onto. If the Accept key is pressed to look for another entity the change will be re-saved. If the changed is not wanted the Abandon key must be pressed. Undo may be used if an entity is accepted by mistake.
