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.
