The reason I would like to select utility runs from plan view is because I was fortunate enough to receive a LandXML file from an engineer that had the drainage and sewer and I now what to go through and assign utility runs to their respective reference alignment.
The only and "quickest" way I found to do this is to go:
- Project Explorer
- Right click on the run and select "Select Members"
- visually see where the run is,
- Select the run
- Change the reference alignment
- Repeat until done
This is not awful for a smaller project but it would be an absolute nightmare for a large municipality project with many alignments and potentially hundreds of pipe runs.
