The columns of the Traverse View can be displayed in any sequence. The display sequence determines what is displayed and in what order. Enter any of the letters shown within the listing. You do not need to include the point label (P) or point type since they are always displayed. The following list shows the display sequence options:
Some editions of TPC do not include all the letters.
The editing sequence determines where the cursor goes when you press [Enter]. If you enter a letter not in the display sequence TPC will add the letter to the end of the display sequence for you.
Keep in mind that as you enter data for a point, the cursor tracks through the editing sequence. When you come to the end of the sequence, adds another point to the traverse and begins the editing sequence for the new point.
Sometimes ySometimes you don’t want to use the edit sequence. When entering information about an occupied point, you might want to enter the description, then move down to the coordinates instead of automatically incrementing to the next point. Just use the left arrow and right arrow keys or your mouse to move around the Traverse View without following the edit sequence.
Enter the point types that you would like to have used for each occupied station. Example: BS/SS would insert a backsight then a sideshot after the occupied point.
Use the following letters to define a point type:
The following options affect how the Travrse View works.
Use one or two rows to display each point.
In Single Row format, your data looks like this:
101100.45N35°30’30”EFND 1” I.P.
102124.87N76°15’46”EFND 1” I.P.
With Single Row format turned off, your data looks like this:
101FND 1” I.P.
102FND 1” I.P.
Turn this option on to copy the description of a point to each new point that is created below it. Use this as a time saver if you have a series of points with the same description.
Turn this on to have TPC warn you if any points you are about to delete contain raw data. If turned on, TPC will list the points with raw data in the Message View so you can see which points the message refers to.
In TPC, raw data is stored with the traverse points. If you delete a traverse point with raw data, the raw data is gone.
Turn this option on to display tooltips in the view.
Turn this on to add a status bar to this Traverse View. This brings the information in the status bar closer to where you are working on your traverse data. This is particularly useful if you are using multiple monitors and want all the information about a view to reside on the same monitor as the Traverse View.
If you turn this option off (Default), the same information is displayed in the desktop's status bar.
TPC lets you save your Traverse View formats and re-use them as needed. Each format gets a unique name, making them easy to identify when recalling them.
Save the current settings under a new or existing named traverse format.
Recalls an existing traverse format. You are able to choose any of the pre-defined formats or any you have saved.
