  • Fixed an issue in which a feature line used as a corridor baseline could disappear when the baseline was deleted and then undone.

Drafting and Annotation

  • Fixed an issue that would occur when creating or editing a free vertical curve (parabola, by radius or K value) connecting a tangent and a curve in a profile.

Gravity Pipe Networks

  • Fixed an issue in which a pipe's label was positioned incorrectly.

Object Enabler

  • Fixed a stability issue that would occur when opening a DWG file in Autodesk Navisworks with the Civil 3D Object Enabler installed.
