There are several types of profiles: surface profiles, layout profiles, superimposed profiles, quick profiles, and corridor profiles.
You can review and edit the default style and name format settings for profiles and profile views. You can also review and edit default settings for profile and profile view commands.
Styles control the way a profile and profile view are displayed in a drawing. Profiles have label styles that control the appearance and behavior of their labels in a drawing.
Several aspects of profile data and display are controlled by properties.
Use the criteria-based design feature to apply agency-specific standards to a profile.

Use the profile view grid to display one or more profiles for a horizontal alignment.
Visualize the location of an object in relation to a surface profile or section.
