In the Terrain module, it is possible to select multiple features; selected features are the target of most operations (delete, move, change line-type, change properties, etc.). Often the concept of current point and current feature is used. At least one feature must be selected.
There is no current point or feature if no features are selected. Selected features are always displayed with color magenta.
The Current Point is displayed in the plan and profile windows with a red cross.
The Current Feature is the selected feature containing the Current Point.
Most of the information displayed in the Status window relates to the Current Feature and Current Point.
Selecting with the mouse (in selection mode ) is a common and simple way to change the Current Feature and Current Point.
