On August 24th, I mentioned some methods for creating points in Civil 3D 2004. The methods for point creation have been expanded in Autodesk Civil 3D 2005. The enhancements, as mentioned in help, include:
New point creation commands.
Redesigned Create Points dialog box for better consistency with Autodesk Civil 3D user interface.
XDREF functionality (override an attribute of a point with information stored in an external database).
Enhancements to Description Key dialog box to ease use of scaling parameters.
Enhancements to the geodetic calculator, including the ability to select an X,Y coordinate, and integration into the Prospector tab.
Enhancements in the selection of points and point groups in the AutoCAD Object Properties window.
