The Traverses Manager always shows which traverses are tagged in the current drawing. If you switch from one drawing to another, the tagged traverses will update appropriately. This is a powerful and flexible feature of TPC. There are many times when you want to see just a certain part of a survey without the clutter of all the survey points. For example, in a subdivision survey you might want to see the “as-built” location of all the water meters in relation to the lot lines. In a site survey, you might want to see only the trees plotted along with the property boundary to see if you tied all the ones you were supposed to.
Once you learn how to select traverses for the Drawing View, you’ll wonder how you ever lived without it.
If you are familiar with CAD and layers, you need to know that this is a fundamental difference between TPC and CAD. In TPC you tag the traverses you want to include in a drawing and rarely use layers. See Drawing View vs CAD.
Other views, like the Points Manager and Point Codes Manager allow items in the view to be tagged. See Tagging Items.
