Creating Custom Symbols and Line-Types

Updated July 09, 2021


This article applies to:
  • Terrain 3D
  • Terrain Forestry
  • RoadEng Civil
  • RoadEng Forestry

In this section, new symbols and line-types will be created. Tables of symbols and line-types are stored together in TRF files. The default symbol and line table file is <Defaults and Layouts>\normal.trf.

Note: RoadEng does not write over your <Defaults and Layouts> files during an update; customizations you made in the past will not be overwritten. If you want to see the latest version of normal.trf (or any other setup file) look in <Defaults and Layouts>\LastInstall.

Terrain and Location documents have private symbol/line tables stored in their files (extension .te1 for Terrain and .ds3 for Location). Survey/Map documents always use the defaults in normal.trf.

To download these collections use the e-Library function in the Line-type Editor.
