Defining the Property Line

If you are working in a confined or unusually-shaped area, you may want to define the property lines. The property line will only appear in the 2D design window.

If you know the exact coordinates you can enter them using the Survey Coordinates window and define your property line based on the data you input (you can also edit a manually drawn property line and adjust the points based on coordinates). There are three coordinate modes available when adding a property line based on coordinates.
