If you receive a drawing from a Civil3D user, there is a possibility it contains CogoPoints that appear locked. You can’t move them, you can’t rotate them, etc. Since you don’t have the Survey Database you can’t unlock them like the original creator did. If this happens to you, read on.
Like a lot of things in Civil3D, it is possible but not easy to do. This post is an attempt to provide a step-by-step procedure on how to add additional properties to AeccCogoPoints.
Because of the way IntelliCAD creates a copy of a partial menus content and resource DLL (the icons), then locks that DLL at the operating system level, users of our add-ons that change have to do a special procedure in order to see the new menu items and icons. For example our MapWorks product receives additions on pretty much a weekly basis and while we can update the files in our install folder, that’s not enough as it is on other platforms. Follow this procedure to see the new menu items and icons.
