Place Temporary Dimension in Cross Section View

I believe this tool is broken for whatever reason. We have tried it on two different computers and are seeing the same thing. If you open the Right Click Menu and use Place Temporary Dimension Line, it flashes for an instant on the center of the XS and then the tool quits. We have gone through all the deleting rsc and other temporary microstation files as usual and that has not resolved the issue.

Is this a known issue and is there anything that can be done about it?

  • There are two types of dynamic cross sections, corridor and alignment.

    If you choose the alignment when prompted instead of the corridor boundary this will be a faster view. This is because the dynamic view doesn’t have to load all the corridor information, similar to the Roadway Designer Cross Section View. The down side (besides the extra clicks for left offset right offset station and interval) is you can’t dimension, show cut/fill, hover for point information, etc. from the alignment type.
