This option is for moving the path of a road centreline, by repositioning one or more of the centreline IPs (Intersection Points).

You can change the road centreline path at any time during the design process. Site3D will work out all the knock-on effects and update your site accordingly.

On the Road Tools button road tools toolbar, click the Centreline Move IP button move point button.

Example of moving a centreline point

Select an IP on a centreline (they will highlight as you move the mouse near) and move it to where you want.

To place the points accurately, you can use the various snap options on the snap toolbar, and make temporary construction lines using the construction line toolbar.

Also, you can right-click the mouse to get a menu where you can select Enter Coordinate to type the desired coordinate on the keyboard.
