I would like to edit an alignment that has an active profile and I am having trouble understanding why I cannot edit a specific way.
First screen shot shows original alignment (of course this alignment extends further north).
Second screen shot shows complex element I want to replace beginning of original alignment with.
So essentially the beginning of the alignment will be shorter. I tried to use the Complex Redefine. I am allowed to select original alignment but when prompted to select complex element to redefine I get the circle with the line thru it and a prompt of Invalid Geometry type.
I know that the replacement complex element is valid as I can break the original alignment and then use the Complex By Elements command to join the replacement complex element with the rest of the now broken original alignment. But this is not desired because I cannot use the original alignment name which is what my corridor is currently using. The profile is associated to this new alignment but again my corridor is associated to the original alignment name.
I would like to keep original alignment intact and insert or replace the replacement alignment so as to keep the original alignment name which will not affect my corridor. Anyone?

How about renaming the alignments once you have the replacement in the file. Rename the original and then rename the replacement to match original.

Thanks for the reply and this did work although I had to go thru multiple steps to finish the process.
I have outline the steps below:
I basically layed out the steps from the video here but included the part about assign civil rule to the profile -
I have a similar scene to edit complex alignment which has active profile. I have to change the PI station and X,Y. The civil handle only shows the "dot". So, in short not showing the other civil handles which PI must show.
Sean, Thanks for this workaround. However, even tough I keep the same name the link to the corridor is lost.
I think the redefine complex is a good tool, very needed to adjust/modify geometries, but it does not seem to work. In all the cases I have tried, I have been prompted by the invalid geometry type. Why does this happen? Why the geometry is invalid? Any idea?
