View Elevations or Cut/Fill Depths

Use the Grid tab to view elevations or cut and fill depths at each grid intersection of the grid cell.

When you view the grid quantities by elevation, the elevation for the active layer appears in the upper left corner of each grid square. When you view grid quantities to show cut or fill at grid intersections, the change in elevation between the existing and proposed layers appears at each intersection. If the corner value is negative, the grid intersection requires cut and if the value is positive, the grid intersection requires fill.

Use the Text option to view the elevations, depths, and grid corner values with a transparent background, so that the numbers appear in black font directly over the cut and fill colors. You can also view the elevations, depths, and grid corner values with a white background and red and blue font.
