Swapping Edges = Flipping Faces

As I have tried to equate capabilities in Autodesk Civil 3D 2005 to how Land Desktop worked, I find I like many of the new terms better.

When needing to fine tune a surface in Land Desktop we often used the "Flip Face" command. This command name was often misinterpreted.

Now the command is called "Swap Edge". I feel it is slightly more meaningful. We access this command by going to the Prospector Tab expanding the "Surfaces" collection, expanding the surface to edit, expand "Definition", Right-click on "Edits" and select "Swap Edge".

Note: You must have triangle edges visible in your surface style in order for the command to activate.
