 For cross sections of pitches and ledge routes with their own survey data, you can create multiple scraps at the different heights, so that they can have different colours at the different heights. For cross sections of pitches and ledge routes with their own survey data, you can create multiple scraps at the different heights, so that they can have different colours at the different heights.
  
-You may want to draw a border around the entire set of cross sections, to show that they are related spatially to each other. A regular "border" line with "-clip off" may be used for this purpose.+You may want to draw a border around the entire set of cross sections, to show that they are related spatially to each other.

 Normally, you would want to "input" the .th2 file at the highest level of your survey, since it probably relates to multiple subsurveys spread across your entire data set, but you could just input it at whatever level will contain all of the passages involved in the cross section. Normally, you would want to "input" the .th2 file at the highest level of your survey, since it probably relates to multiple subsurveys spread across your entire data set, but you could just input it at whatever level will contain all of the passages involved in the cross section.

 "Input" the .th2 file into the survey. That's it. You have basically created your cross section, disguised as a projected elevation. You now need to export it as a PDF. "Input" the .th2 file into the survey. That's it. You have basically created your cross section, disguised as a projected elevation.
