Slope Properties

The properties used to modify a Slope object are located to the right of the screen when your slope is selected. These properties can either be adjusted right before adding the slope to your landscape or after it has been added. Below is a description of each available property in the order that they appear in the software.

Options

Line style

The Line Style property determines the appearance of the slope’s outline. To change the line style, click the Line Style button and select the style you wish to use from the dialog that appears.

Edit points

Click the Edit points button to enable or disable point editing mode, which will allow you to modify the slope’s shape. See Editing Points for details.

Rise

The Rise property determines the height of the slope. To change the slope height, move the Rise slider or enter a value in the text field. If point editing mode is enabled and a point is selected, then changing the rise will affect only the selected point.
