This is a sample of the output possible with Q-Legal. There are limitless ways to display description data based solely upon how you edit your templates for headers, footers and tangent/non-tangent curves. Any of the variables may be excluded and there is no limit on the verbiage or user prompts.

 

All text in RED was entered in response to user prompts (i.e. if the header reads //plan name// the user is prompted at run-time "Enter plan name") and was the only text entered. The total time required to produce this description (including answering the prompts) was about 30 seconds.

 

Adjoiner data can be extracted from a drawing (either block attributes, text or mtext) by clicking a button in Word. Q-legal also includes a user-defined library of often used terms to further eliminate typing.

 

The output is the same whether you use the Land Desktop versions or the Civil 3D version.
