Multi-Plot is apage layout tool for creating output. Any of the main windows (Plan, Profile, Data, and Section) can be placed on a Multi-Plot sheet with other items such as a legend, a scale bar, a bitmap graphic, a Terrain file, curve tables, template assignments, or a title block.


As of Verstion 8, Multi-Plot layouts are no longer included in standard screen layouts. There are two unique layout file types available to Multi-Plot in the Location module:

  • Book Layout file (.blt) – a book layout file is a collection of chapter layouts.
  • Chapter Layout file (.clt) – a chapter layout file contains the information for a single layout type. The number pages within each chapter are defined by that Chapter’s pagination settings.

Note: Refer to Getting Started section for file install folders (<RoadEngCivil> and <Defaults and Layouts>)

In this section, you will learn how to create a Multi-Plot book with several chapters, including a title page and a standard Plan over Profile.
