Thanks! I don't know what I was thinking leaving this out of this post, and I will probably edit it shortly to reflect this info. This can be opened with the Content Catalog Editor found in START>ALL PROGRAMS>AUTODESK>CIVIL 3D 2013>CONTENT CATALOG EDITOR.

I totally agree with you (I should have noted this in the post). You always want to provide the most accurate model, however I had noticed that this particlar issue hade become a common misconcpetion. So in an effort to clear the air I thought it best to explain what users were seeing in profile view. Thanks for the comment and thanks for reading!!

Thanks Todd!

I would also like to note that this DOES NOT require you to turn off hardware acceleration, it just requires you to toggle on/off or off/on to get the white box to disappear. Once toggled you can return to your previous settings, this time without the white box.

Matt- I completely forgot about the layers... that would be a dead giveway, wouldn't it? Nice catch :) Christopher- Thanks for the additional tip!!

Hi James- Thanks for the comment. Actually working with Joshua on his specific issue, we had discussed this. However in dealing with this issue, it seems that most user's focus had been on the fact that the section views had moved and were questioning the integrity of their drawings. We wanted to ensure user's were informed of the change. As for a solution, I can assure you that we are not withholding a possible solution. If we did have something to share it would have been included in the original post. Thanks again!!

Hi Joshua- Thanks for the comment. If you have that many sheets & sections, this may become cumbersome. We wanted to get this information on the blog to inform users that if they notice their section views shifting, that their data has not been compromised and is still intact. However as Willie pointed out in his comment, you can perform the RECOVER command if you just desire to plot or view the drawing. Thanks again!!

Hi Willie- I appreciate the clarification, however you will have to run RECOVER everytime you open a drawing to get this result. This may acceptable if you are just opening a drawing to have a look or plot, but proceeding with a design may not be ideal. Thanks again for the comment and the clarification!!

Hi Willie- Since this is a change Development had made to the program to improve functionality, the RECOVER command will not work because the drawing itself is fine. Thanks for reading!

Hi T, Thanks for reading. Unfortunately I am not completely sure where the Map icons are located. If I had to guess, I would probably have a look at the map3ddrawings.mnr and the map3dgeospatial.mnr if your map icons are missing. I did not notice any changes to my map icons during the testing and writing of this post. Thanks again!!

Hi Matt- Thanks for the interest. From what we have been told it is possible for the surface to triangulate properly provided there are no "true" vertical faces or overhangs. However if you are dealing with, for example, a blasted area where a road has been cut, the resulting "cliffs" are not typically true vertical faces and they do have some slope.

Hi Sharesse, I have not tried editing the XML, but it may be a good tip for other users who may be interested in exploring other otptions. Thanks for reading, and we are always interested in hearing about other ways to accomplish tasks in Civil 3D!

Hi David- I am glad to hear that you enjoyed the post, we aim to please! Regarding your additional question, unfortunately I haven’t tried what you are looking to do, but this does sound like a great idea. We would suggest you consult with your Reseller, as they would be the best source of info for this type of customization. Thanks again for reading, and I hope you had a great holiday!

Sorry for the late response.... unfortunately the ability to rotate the projected object is not available at this time. For most practical instances that this feature will be used, rotating the object will not be nessessary. Such as for feature lines, trees, hydrants, etc. Thanks for reading!

Chuck- I have found that whenever I want to do this, I have to apply it to each folder. Christian- I have also experienced the same issue with these setting not "sticking". As I am personally nowhere near a Windows OS expert, I am unaware of a setting that will make these settings "stick". I hope you still can find this little bit of information useful, and always thanks for reading!

I apologize I should have added that information in my original post, I didn't intend to confuse any of you. As for prior versions, I am unaware of any plans in the future. Thanks for reading!
