The 'Copy' function is used to copy a single structure to a position identified by a marker or markers. If you want to copy a structure more than once, see copying a structure multiple times.
Step 1: Place a marker or markers
Place a circle to act as a marker for the position you would like to copy the structure to. If you are copying a portal you need to place two markers, one for each mast.
Step 2: Click the 'Copy' button in the 'Structures' section of the Lineardraft toolbar
Step 3: Click the structure you want to copy
Step 4: Click your marker(s)
For portal structures, click both markers, one after the other.
Step 5: Click the left rail
This should be the leftmost rail of the tracks you wish the structure to be associated with, when looking in the direction of increasing chainage.
Step 6: Click the right rail
This should be the rightmost rail of the tracks you wish the structure to be associated with, when looking in the direction of increasing chainage.
Once you've clicked the right rail, the 'Create Structure' window will open.
Step 7: Make any required changes to your structure, then click 'Confirm'
Please note, whenever a structure is copied, the foundation and mast bearings are reset to the default rotation of the structure type being copied.
Once you click 'Confirm' the 'Create Structure' window will close, and your structure will be copied.
Top Tip: When copying a structure, the name and chainage remain unchanged, so be sure to rename your copied structure to avoid duplicate names, and update your chainage accordingly.
