Ok I'm not sure how to ask this but here goes. I would like to use the station/offset feature in Civil Accudraw to place a point. The only way I can find to enter a station into Civil Accudraw is to manually key it in. What I would like to do is to graphically select a location on an alignment and have that station returned exactly to Civil Accudraw . I know I can draw a line at a certain distance perpendicular to the alignment and then snap to the end of the line to store the point and then delete the line. But is there a way with Civil Accudraw to accomplish this without having to round the station.
With civil accudraw>station offset/mode activated try moving your mouse along the alignment then hitting the enter button to lock in the precise station, then you can key in your offset. It should look something like this.

Arghh. That was so simple. Can't believe I didn't think of it. Thank you.
Looking at Civil Accudraw stationing. How do you display more than 2 decimal places. I have changed the Settings > File > Civil Formatting > Station settings to a precision of 4 but it has no effect. I have looked around in other locations and noting seems to change this setting.

I was using OBM, Looks like the Civil Formatting > Station settings do effect the precision but you need to be in the file that the geometry is drawn in. So you would need ORD do change the settings for civil accudraw precision on geometry.
