Cant edit proposed site contours

Recommended Posts

Hi all, 


I have a query concerning site model contours. I am trying to edit my proposed contours in VW 1017 but when I go to right click, the options to edit does not show up...and I have no way of directly editing them. Has anybody else had this problem?


Any advice would be really helpful, thank you.

I think direct editing of counter lines was introduced in VW  2018.


Depending on how the DTM was created you can right click and edit the source geometry.

oh I didn't realise that was the case. Thanks Hans-Olav. My model randomly creates major dips into the site even when I have not edited it and I can't  figure out how to restore the earlier contours. Have you seen this problem before?
