About line status

Echoview assigns the following line status to line segments in a line:

  • good (displayed in green)
  • bad (displayed in magenta)
  • unverified  or uncertain (displayed in cyan)
  • none (not displayed - undefined line position)

A line status of good or bad is automatically assigned to line data when lines are created by line picking. Lines are drawn in line status colors with a line thickness. Line status colors and thickness may be specified for all lines in an EV file or for a particular line variable.

To manually assign line status:

  1. Make a line active by selecting it from the Line and Surface tool list line edit tool.
  2. Select the section of the line to which you are assigning a line status, using one of the selection tools.
  3. On the Shortcut menu (right-click), point to Set Line Status and then click the required line status


  • When you assign line status manually, new interpolated coordinate points are created.
  • If you choose None, the section of the line will be deleted.
  • User-defined keyboard shortcuts are available for each type of line status.

Line status has the following uses:
