As part of the engineering drawings I need to create embankment lines (some times called piano lines or frog lines). How do I do this via the templates in open Roads.
this is what they should look like for cut and fill:
Can you just let us know which native civil product you are using Inroads, MX or Geopak

Simon beat me to asking which native product you are using, but I wanted to go ahead and give you an answer if working with InRoads. There is a tool under the native commands (Drafting > Draw Slope Direction Pattern) which will give this graphical output.

To complement Chris' answer, if you're in MX they are called slope signature strings.
You can create them under Modify>Edit Strings>Add Slope Signature Strings, and there is a Wiki Article which goes in to a bit more details.
My guess is you're using InRoads though :-)
Hi, sorry should have told you the software. I am using SS3 Geopak Civil Suite in Microstation SS3!
Hi all, any answers?
