 +====== Slope-Manager ======
 +<WRAP round info 60%>
 +Command: **GMANAGER**
 +===== Description =====
 +Rainwater needs to run off to avoid any water damage or danger. The calculation of slopes can take some time. With the DATAflor Slope-Manager you can create slopes quickly and reliably, eg. for drainage plans of sealed surfaces or just as design aspect.
 +You need at least two points to create a slope. The points will be connected and saved as a point list.
 +===== Procedure =====
 +{{youtube>​UxHIw4HZKGQ?​medium}}\\ ​
 +===== Functions =====
 +After entering the command GMANAGER you have the opportunity to create new points for a slope by derivating heights from objects, specifying height, grade or height difference, or derivating an existing drawing object.\\ ​

 +<WRAP column 72%>
 +|**Height of object **|The new point uses the height of the selected objects. To detect the exact height of the object, the object snap needs to be activated. The slope will be calculated automatically.|
 +|**Enter height**|The entered value will be used as level of the following points. The slope will be calcuated automatically.|
 +|**Grade in %**|The entered value will be used as grade of the following point connections. The height of the new points is calculated automatically.|
 +|**Height difference**|The new point will be higher than the last point by the entered value. The slope is calculated automatically.|
 +|**Spacing**|Additionally the spacing between the last point and the following point can be specified. Depending on the selected option for the creation of the point the grade or height of the point is calculated automatically.|
 +|**Fix point**|The following point will be marked as a fixed point. The Z-value is now locked and cannot be edited. The point can be unlocked in the point list.|
 +|**Fix slope**|The following slope will be marked as fixed slope. The slope is now locked and cannot be edited. The slope can be unlocked in the point list.|
 +|**Text manually**|For each point the position of the caption can be set individually. If the function is deactivated,​ the settings in the **Options** will be used (see chapter **Slope Options**).|
 +|**Undo**|The last point will be deleted.|
 +|**Options**|Opens the **Options** where the settings for captions and dimensions can be specified.|
 +|**Point style**|Opens the window Point style where the point symbol and point size are defined.|
 +|**Deflect object**|If an object in the drawing is selected the heights of the object are used to calculate the grades. With this object derivation the type of the derivation can be specfied, too:\\ **Pickpoint** - Standard\\ **Distance** - Points will be created in defined distance\\ **Segments** - Object will be broken up in the specified number of pieces and points will be created accordingly|
 +|**New slope**|With this function you can create multiple slopes one by one. A point list will be created for each slope.|
 +|**End**|Closes the detection of slope points and opens the window **Slope-Manager** with the latest point list.| ​
 +<WRAP clear></​WRAP>​
 +A point can be linked to any number of points and with every change grades, distances and heights will be corrected and labelled automatically. Which saves a tremendous amount of time. 
 +<WRAP round tip 90%>
 +If an **existing slope point** is selected for a new slope, the new point can be created as dependant slope object. Which means that the coordinate of the new point is identical with the one of the existing point.</​WRAP>​
 +===== Point list =====
 +In the dialogue **Slope-Manager** the points for the recently created slope will be displayed in a point list. After selecting one or more points they can be edited.\\ \\ {{:​produkte:​cad:​planung:​zei0091_2011.png?​nolink|}}
 +==== Functions ====
 +|{{:​produkte:​cad:​planung:​zei0114_2013.png?​nolink&​|}}|**Edit options:** Opens the **Options** (see chapter Slope options) where the settings for captions and dimensions can be specified.|
 +|{{:​produkte:​cad:​planung:​zei0111_2013.png?​nolink&​|}}|**Select slope:** Saves the changes on the current slope and prompts to select a new slope object. After selection the new point list will be displayed in the dialogue Slope-Manager.|
 +|{{:​produkte:​cad:​planung:​zei0118_2013.png?​nolink&​|}}|**Export Point list:** Saves the point list as **//​CSV//​**-file. This can be used for a set out on site, for example.|
 +|{{:​produkte:​cad:​planung:​zei0104.png?​nolink&​|}}|**Add point:** Adds one or more points to the slope. For this, the dialogue Slope-Manager will be closed and you are asked to specify the next point which will be added to the list.|
 +|{{:​produkte:​cad:​planung:​zei0105.png?​nolink&​|}}|**Select point:** In the drawing one or more points can be selected. These points will then be marked automatically in the point list.|

 +|{{:​produkte:​cad:​planung:​zei0107.png?​nolink&​|}}|**Delete selection:​** The points marked in the point list will be deleted. Afterwards, the point numbers will be updated automatically.|
 +All slope points can be listed and their **visibility** changed. The values for **X**, **Y**, **Z** and for the **grade** can be amended. Additionally the values for Z and the grade can be locked and thus protected from accidental changes. Fixed points are colour coded in the point list and drawing.\\ ​
 +To modify values click in the appropriate field, change the value and confirm with <wrap caps>​**Enter**</​wrap>​. All related values will be re-calculated,​ as long as they are not fixed
 +<WRAP round tip 90%>
 +Select the points in the point list the same way as in the Windows Explorer. Point sections can be marked with the <wrap caps>​**Shift**</​wrap>​-key. Multiple individual points are selected with the <wrap caps>​**Strg/​Ctrl**</​wrap>​-key.
 +==== Slope-automatic ====
 +For a selected point or point section a slope or height can be calculated automatically.
 +=== Procedure ===
 +  - Select either a point or mark a point section in the point list.
 +  - Specify the calculation type for the Slope-automatic:​ Grade, height (same grades) or height (same height difference). The calculation methods are described below. ​
 +  - For a **selected point** you can //specify the target//. Select in the drawing a point of the slope and enter the value required for the calculation. Subsequently the calculation will be processed \\ <WRAP round important 85%> If a grade already exists a calculation is only possible from the base grade to the related grade and not vice-versa.</​WRAP>​ You can //allocate a value// to a **marked point range**. Enter the value necessary for the calculation. Subsequently the calculation will be processed.<​WRAP round tip 85%>With the calculation method height (same grades) and height (same height difference) the value describes the difference between the first and the last point selected. The interim points will be calculated automatically.
 +=== Calculation method ===
 +|**Slope**|Specify a slope. The Z-values of the points will be re-calculated.|
 +|**Height (same grades)**|Specify the height difference between the first and last point selected. The Z-value of the interim points will be calculated at a constant grade.|
