Using Drawing View

The Drawing View gives TPC some powerful graphics features. You can preview your entire survey or selected traverses. You can easily change the way TPC draws the survey in order to evaluate your survey data and make decisions. When you're ready, you can enhance the drawing with stock objects like a title block, scale bar, grid and legend. You can also print the view, plot it, or write a DXF file.

Opening Drawing View

TPC creates only one instance of the Drawing View. When you open an existing drawing, a Drawing View is opened automatically. If you start a new survey, you will need to open the Drawing View yourself.

Turning Toolbars On and Off

The Drawing View uses a number of tool bars to provide quick access to zooming, drawing, selecting and other common tasks. You can include the tool bars for the tasks you do most often and turn off the tool bars you don't need.

Editing the Toolbars

You can also edit the Drawing View toolbars, removing buttons or rearranging them.

To turn individual toolbar buttons on or off

** Note: You can only add up to four additional toolbar buttons to any toolbar in the Drawing View. If you add more than four buttons to a toolbar, then the toolbar will reset and you'll be noticed in the Message View.
