Tagging Items

Tagging points and traverses is another tool that makes TPC very powerful. The idea is that you don't always want to work with the entire survey, just a part of it. You might want to rotate or view certain traverses, or insert certain points into a traverse. Once you get the hang of selecting data, you will use it frequently.

Tagging items is similar to selecting items, except that the tags are persistent until you change them. This allows you to do more than one thing with the same group of traverses or points.

Tagged Traverses and Drawing View

The Drawing View only displays the traverses that are tagged. This is a very convenient way to turn data on or off in your drawing.
