Grade tool - ability to preview the resulting values





The grade tool could have tick boxes for:

-lock elevation

-lock rise/run or percentage


then show the result live, before the grade line is set.


Let's assume that:

-I want to do a preliminary study of the site in regard to site elevations, just to get an overall idea what kind of "elevational situations" are going to occur.

-I know the future floor level and the surrounding street levels, and the maximum allowed slopes.


If want to test several different options; elevations and grades, I have to draw a grade line for each of these "guesses" with different settings.


Why not change the tool so that I can see the end result before I click to set the line? Just like the floating coordinate bar next to the cursor does.


To put it another way, the ability to see the numerical result "live" before the grade line is set. If I lock the run/rise ratio, I see the elevation at the end of the grade line change live depending on the lenght of the line, and if I lock the elevation, I see the run/rise ratio change live.


This would allow me to get the about right elevation easily, after which one can input the exact numbers into the tool.
