Is there a way to remove feature definition from lines or arcs? I have added feature definition to normal Microstation lines to used them in corridor but now I would like to remove the feature definition from them. Or at least drop them but every time I drop them they disapear from the drawing. Is this a normal behavior?
Also is there a way to just drop civil offset line to normal microstation line without feature definition?
In the Properties dialog, you can just set the Feature Definition to 'No Feature Definition' - that will remove it. The element will still be on whatever level it was put on when the feature definition was set, but that too can be changed in the Properties dialog.
Geometry > Common Tools > Simplify Geometry - this will remove the offset relationship. You can then use the Drop Element tool with 'Application Objects' checked - the element will still have its geometry rules associated.
Thanks Mark, the Simplify Geometry command used with the drop command really did the trick.

How did you add a feature definition to the Microstation lines? I need to figure out how to duplicate that action to control a template.
Under the Openroads modeling space, Geometry ribbon/ general tools, ther is a an icon named "Standards" ther you will also find the set feature definition function where you can assign feature definition to normal lines. So they have names and could be use in corridor modeling.
Jeremie, your instruction provided the information I needed. Thanks.
