Dragons Teeth

Would it be possible to add more flexibility to the Dragons Teeth markings. At the moment we are stuck with a series of 20 in a straight line. As far as I can see there is no ability to change this.

Hiya Micheal,

There is a command that is more flexible in that it draws around curves and straights, use the 'by picking' item. (or type DRAGONS1)
However this will still do a full set of 20 pairs of teeth.

I was just going to log this wish into our system, when I noticed there is already one there, 'to be able to create dragons teeth with less than the full amount', so I had added your request into that item for you.

Many Thanks
Alan

When creating a new drawing in KeyLINES it would be nice to not have a list of Visirail layers preloaded? (I am in version 8.2 and waiting for our IT to install the latest update which takes weeks apparently)

Hi Annette,

Well you'll be pleased to know the layers aren't in the latest version, so when your IT install 9.0 you will find they are no longer preloaded.

The layers were defined within the default DWT that loads with KeyLINES.  If you use a different dwt then you will find different layers when you start your drawing.  You will also find that the desktop icon has the dwt in the various bits of the 'target' line of text.  You may be able to change that text to another dwt if you so wish.

Many Thanks for asking about it.

Alan

Calming > Humps >Ramp

Is it possible to have the option to include the triangles as part of the ramp command. At the moment I have to draw separately.

Calming > Other > Hump Edge-line

Is it possible to add the ability to select existing feature (ie kerbline) and draw the edge-line at a predefined offset from this. (similair to the single yellow line offset command)

Thanks
Mike

Hi Mike,  thanks again for posting on the forum,

Regarding the triangles on a ramp, I agree it would be a very good idea to draw them as part of the ramp. So I have added such a request to the wish list.

Regarding the hump edge line, I was a little surprised that the usual split / pick/ offset options were not available with this marking. I suppose that is because it doesn't usually have arcs or go along lane lines. But again it seems a great suggestion to make that marking have an 'offset' option, so it is now on the wish list too.

Great suggestions.

Hi

Just another couple of quick suggestions that might make things even easier.

Bus + Cycle > Cycle L > Adv Stop Line

Can we have the option to exclude the lead in taper for the advanced cycle box. This is not required if a cycle lane is going into it (see attached image). At the moment I have to explode and remove manually.

Also is it possible to have the ability to fill the advanced cycle box (in green).

Hi again Mike, thanks for another great post.

Yes those will be two excellent additions to the set of adv cycle stop line markings.

I have logged the wish into our system so that it can be worked on with other wishes.

Many thanks for taking the time to do that image and add the wish in the forum.

Regards

Hi Alan, 
would it be possible to have a setting in keylines to prevent the software from turning off the object snap settings, or at least to turn them back to user preferences once a command has been completed.
Also would it be possible to increase the functionality of the speed cushion options to be able to change cushion spacing from each other, similar to being able to change the length and width?
Regards, 
Guy

Hi again Mike.

Thanks for posting for posting a couple more good wish items. 

Regarding the object snap settings, there is supposed to be a 'putting back' already within the system. It is intended to notice the setting at the start and then switch them back at the end. I think there might be an issue however if you change the osnap setting part way through drawing a line and then KeyLINES still puts things back to what they were before you started.  I will log the issue and also do some 'try this' 'try that' prodding around to see if I can find some consistent examples.

Regarding the cushions, these are set out using advice from an original document about their spacing (I think it might have been from Devon). The issue is that if you move the cushions further apart then it is possible for motorists to drive in-between them without going over a bump and therefore continue higher speeds. I think the best way to achieve your requirements in the short term would be to draw a separate cushion for each lane that you want, one at a time, and then try to limit the number of schemes that use different spacing.

Regards

Hi Alan, thanks for the response.
with respect to the object snap, yes most of the time it does revert back to previous settings, but would it be possible to change the programme setting so that it doesn't turn them off, similar to the expert setting in KeySIGN, so the operator can choose which settings to use.
WRT the cushions, that is what i have been doing, we have a similar guidance document in Staffs, that determines optimum spacing based on carriageway width and preffered widths of cushions relevant to the carriageway. Being able to manually adjust the spacing between them would be useful.
Also relating to the cushions the base line doesn't match the outline of the cushion whenreducing it to the width of th cushion, meaning the snap grips are on one side just inst the side ramp and just outside on the other, minor glitch, but it means having to reposition the individual cushions to the correct postion. 
Cheers
Guy
