On the File Menu of the section preview window is the option Export CSV which allows you to export any of the section profiles on the currently viewed section to CSV files. When selected, the dialog below will be displayed.
The Points to Export group defines which points are exported to the CSV file. When there is more than one profile in a section, the Profile drop list allows you to choose which profile to export.
There are three radio buttons defining the points to be exported to the CSV as follows.
All Points - will export all the points in the profile.
Regular Spacing - will export points that are interpolated at regular intervals along the section profile. When this is selected, the Spacing field allows you to define the spacing at which points are calculated.
Both - will export both the above. The points will be sorted so that they are in the correct order.
The Data to Export group defines the data that is to be exported for each point in the CSV file. The Headers check button allows you to export the headers for the CSV files at the top of the CSV file. Use the left and right arrows to select the data that you wish to export and the Up and Down arrows to order the selected data. The following items of information can be exported and if the headers are exported, the name in the dialog is used unless otherwise stated.
Code - the code of a point in the profile.
Easting - the easting of a point on the profile.
Northing - the northing of a point on the profile
Height - the height of a point in the profile.
Offset - the offset of a point from the start of the section. The header for this data in the CSV file will be OFFS=.
Chainage - the chainage of a point in the profile. This value is the offset along the profile added to any start chainage that has been applied to the section. The header for this data in the CSV file will be CHN=.
Once the data has been selected, you will be asked to enter a name for the CSV file. The default name in the file dialog depends on whether the section is a single section, such as a long section, or one element of a multiple section, such as a cross section. It also depends on whether there is more than one section profile.
