Plan & Profile Tool

Idea created by lee.davis on Dec 16, 2011
    Many of us that use GIS for Engineering need tools to create "Plan & Profile" drawings. Because ArcMap is in-capable of this we use AutoCAD Civil 3D. Plan & Profile drawings are used in design of many different types of structures: pipelines, powerlines, waterlines, sewerlines, roads, bridges, railroads, & more. The  graph tool in ArcMap is complete crap, and has not been upgraded in 10 years. We need something that creates a graph based on data shown in the data frame at a specified range. Where the plan view and profile view is linked in the layout. FYI - I do know about software extensions that will do this but think it should be provided out of the box.
