Designing a Field in Sections

How can I design a field into sections and avoid paying for the same field twice?

In OSDv1.4, you can only have one boundary so if you want to design separate areas individually, we recommend this approach:

1. Import the survey data
2. Calculate a landform design.
3. Unlock the design and you will be forced to save as normal to some name eg FieldASection1.osd.
4. Then use menu File > Save As and change name slightly eg FieldASection2.osd.
5. Now you have two unlocked design files that you can design independently. 
6. You can repeat step 4 as many times as you want. 

OptiSurface Designer V2 we will have ability to have multiple boundaries in the same file so this procedure will not be necessary.
