The parameters display in the Data Entry Manager.

The Data Entry Parameters

  • Max Length of Division -the maximum length of each division into which the entity chains arebroken.If the maximum length value would result in fewer entitiesthan the selected chain with the most entities, the length is reducedto match that chain.This is a maximum value so the entities createdcan be equal or less than this value, based on the entity chains thatare selected.

Selected Geometry


(Delete) - removes the highlighted item from the Selected Geometry list.

(Delete All) - removes all entities from the Selected Geometry list.

The list will display all entities currently selected for the function.

  • OK - performs thefunction after geometry selection.
  • Cancel - cancels the functionwhen finished.
