Civil 3D Mid-ordinate Distance Part 2--Changing Default

In Part 1 I explained why you may need to use a smaller mid-ordinate distance when you Add Feature Lines as Breaklines to a surface. You may want to change the Civil 3D default mid-ordinate distance. The image below shows how you can change the default distance in AutoCAD Civil 3D 2010 using the Toolspace (ShowTS command)

I hope that's helpful.

I don't see this setting in 2009, does it exist somewhere else?

I read somewhere it is new in 2010. Sorry. Install the new version. :-)
