  1. Dashed lines identify the trails in Park Map (see figure above). Hold down the <Shift> key, then with the Select cursor left-click on each of the trails. Use zoom and screen scrolling to see all the trails.

If a wrong feature is accidentally selected, de-select by clicking again on the same feature with the shift key still depressed. To start again left-click in a blank area to de-select all features.

  1. The trails could also have been selected: Plan | Select button |By Name from dropdown. Unselect All button. Highlight (or double-click) on all the TRAIL-? features, then press Select. Press OK to exit the dialog.

We will adjust the line type for all the trails:

  1. Feature Tools | Line Types, Symbols or through the Feature Properties panel. Change line-type: from 43 Dash Dot to 44 - Dash x 2 (narrow). Press OK. Left-click anywhere in the Plan Window to de-select trails.
