Using Benchmarks while Building the Design
I am accustomed to using benchmarks, that I place during the survey, while I am building the design. It would be helpful to be able to see the benchmarks while in the proposed Topo.

This feature is now available in OptiSurface Designer V2.4. Benchmarks are now separated in their own layer which you can turn ON and OFF and overlay with any other map.

Thanks for the feedback. We will look into ways to improve this.
In the meantime, a workaround here is to Turn ON the Existing Topography while Proposed Topography is also Turned ON. Then go to Existing Topography Properties and Turn OFF everything except 'Show Points', Turn ON 'Benchmarks' and 'Description Labels'. Make sure to adjust the 'Marker Size' and 'Label Size' to spot the point easily while designing.
To go to Existing Topography Properties:
Right click 'Existing Topography' under Project Explorer > select Properties.
