importing breaklines

Good question.

It should work if you do this:

1. Load the shapefile into SMS.

2. In the GIS module, choose "Shapes -> Feature Objects" from the Mapping menu. This should create arcs in the map module.

3. Switch to the coverage in the map module with your arcs and do Map->Scatter. This should create points along the arcs at the correct elevations connected by breaklines.

Let us know if it doesn't work as expected.

Apologies if this is posted somewhere, but is there a way to bring in 3D polyline shapefiles from ArcGIS to use as breaklines in SMS, using the 3D info in the shapefile?
