The first step is to complete the connection between the points from template one to template two. (This will show the Roadway Designer how to connect the points from one template to the next. If the two templates have the same point names in both templates, this portion will be completed automatically and show a dark blue rectangle.) This can be done by double clicking on the rectangular shape in the Roadway Designer’s Plan View or right clicking on the shape and selecting “Edit”.
Once the Edit Transition dialog populates, the connection will need to be completed for all the points. These points that require user adjustments will be displayed with a bold plus sign. (If this process is not completed, there is a high possibility that some of the points/components will not be created within the surface.)
If it is hard to view the two templates, the view can be moved by right clicking on a point and selecting “Move Template”.
Figure 5. Edit Transition Midpoint – Before edits
In this dialog, some of the point constraints must be “released” from the template points so the template can transition properly. This can be accomplished by right clicking on the point that will be moving/transitioning and selecting the constraint that needs to be released.
Figure 6. Edit Transition Midpoint – release/delete constraints
There is a scrollbar at the bottom of the dialog that will show how the template will transition from one template to the next over the station range specified. When the correct constraints have been released, the transition can take place. Check the transition with the scrollbar to verify that the transition looks/appears correctly.
Figure 7. Edit Transition Midpoint – Use of Scrollbar
Once the template appears to transition correctly in the Edit Transition Midpoint dialog, select "OK". At this time, the transition has been addressed correctly/completely and it will be applied to the Roadway Designer.
Figure 8. Plan View – After transition is complete
The transition is shown to be "addressed" with a dark blue rectangle in the plan view of the Roadway Designer.
