Having some issues trying to use a specific form of point control. Specifically the Mode - Vertical, Control Type - Elevation and Grade.
I am attempting to set the inslope to be variable using the point control. I would like the horizontal width of the inslope to be variable, the slope to be constant, but target a specific elevation.
The point control seems to work in the corridor as far as the constant slope (1:3) and the horizontal distance being variable. But my issue is that it does not seem to target my specific elevation of (905.00)
Currently in the area of my point control the pond bottom (specific elevation) varies throughout. it seems as though it is just following a vertical difference with the profile? I can adjust the elevation in point control and watch the inslope shorten or extend depending on whether I go up or down. But still the elevations are not the same throughout the area.

The terminology you're using (point control, elevation, grade) suggests that you're using a survey or 3D modelling app. Those are not terms used in plain old MicroStation.

I am using corridor modeler.
Are you using a 3d microstation element for the profile or an Openroads element with a feature definition? It need to be add to the corridor model as an external reference.
My centerline profile was created with 3D microstation and stored in the gpk.
I think the problem is I can't target a horizontal or plan view element because the inslope horizontal distance would vary since it is just targeting an elevation.
