Written by: Bob Mecham

  1. From the InRoads pull down menu Geometry > View Geometry > Vertical Annotation
  2. Select the Curves tab and toggle on Curve Witness, Curve Leader, and Curve Leader Terminator.inroads view vertical annotation
  3. Open the Point Symbol dialog by double clicking on the Curve leader Terminator.inroads point symbology custom arrows view vertical
