*cough* I'd like to point out that Seth arrived after most of the crowd had left. The room was standing room-only prior to his arrival!

This post references using the Map image insert command - using the AutoCAD image insert command does not properly locate georeferenced commands, but the Map version does.

Yes, the last service pack for 2011 should be released soon. However, new functionality is not included in service packs for older products.

There are no further service packs planned for the 2010 release. This functionality is only in 2012 and moving forward.

Bruce - I am aware of that. Our web team should be changing it soon. Go ahead and use the Civil 3D folders. Forest - the issue is that you see slow performance due to a larger number of layers. Install it and you won't see that issue.

Louise and Andrew - I posted an update regarding this functionality. Please visit http://beingcivil.typepad.com/my_weblog/2011/03/when-is-a-curve-not-a-curve.html for further information.

No, you cannot assign superelevation to an alignment that contains no curves. You can, however, add manual stations later in the process, provided you have at least one curve.

Hi Jess, Thanks for the comment. I have an answer for you, but likely not in the form that you're expecting :) Do we have an option for transparency in Civil 3D (or AutoCAD, for that matter?) No. However, AutoCAD 2011 introduced the idea of layer transparency. I'm thinking if you assigned a hatch to a transparent layer, you might possibly get what you're looking for...and so is my friend Dana Probert - she does this very thing over on her BIM on the Rocks site! You can find her examples at http://bimontherocks.typepad.com/my_weblog/2010/04/civil-3d-2011-using-autocad-2011-layer-transparency-for-civil-3d-objects.html

Dave - sure, they will be in the drawing correctly, but will not match the survey database coordinates unless the units are set to match there as well. Most surveyors in the US do use US Feet, but keep in mind that this is a global program.

Keep trying - it seems to be hit or miss. I suspect it's receiving high traffic today.

Fred, Your issue is actually behaving as designed. If you will update your SR and ask for the status, we will be able to give you more detail regarding this.
