Hack Line (HacLin)
Type: Interactive Application
Hacks a line.
Hacks (shortens) or extends the end of a line. Two points are read to hack or extend a line as follows:
Which end of the line to hack?
The side of the line on which the Hack Point is placed in reference to the Id Point will be hacked.
How to extend a line
Place the Hack Point past the end of one of the end line segments. The Id Point may be placed anywhere necessary to Id the line. Extending a line can be difficult if the end points are very close or on top of each other. Edit Line may need to be used in this case to move one of the end points.
Hack Line – Lock on
Hack Line – Dig hack
Break Line – Confirm
After the Id Point and Hack Point have been read, the line will be hacked and the results will be verified.
Maximum offset distance (ground) - The Maximum Offset is used when searching for line segments that fall perpendicular to the digitized hack point. A segment must be within this parameter from the hack point to be considered. This avoids using a line segment for extend information when the hack point is digitized at a location meant to extend the line. Enter ground units (default=10)
