Drawing Trees and Hedges with MSCAD 2002

You will enjoy more professional and complete drawings with the addition of details like trees and hedge lines. Using MSCAD 2002, you can go under the Design menu to choose Treeline. Draw straight lines and convert them to a Tree/Hedge line after pressing Enter. The scalloped line will be drawn on the right side of the line, in the direction it was drawn, using the current text size to determine the size of the scallop. If you draw a Tree/Hedge line and the scallops are the wrong size, you can erase the line. Then set the desired text size and redraw the Tree/Hedge line. To set the correct text size, with MSCAD2002, you can go to the MicroSurvey menu -> Text Entry and Editing -> Leroy -> and then pick the size of the text desired. When the text dialog comes up on screen ¢‚¬€œ click on Cancel. This has the effect of setting the desired size, and since you do not want to enter any text, hitting Cancel exits the command. Now you can run the Tree/HedgeLine Command and the new text size will be used to form the scallops.
