Concrete Driveway Shape Other Than Straight

Recommended Posts

I have a straight driveway leading to a circular driveway and would like to add a 'curving concrete area' so I can make the turn into and out of the driveway more easily (see up to red curve in picture). Is that possible? Thanks!

Thanks for the tip--you directed me to look in the right place, and I was able to make the change I wanted (though it's hard to be very accurate to move around little lines in a nice and even curve). See attached picture.

You can create pretty much any shape using the Change Line/Arc and Break Line edit buttons.  This article has a good explanation.  It uses road markings but pretty much the same steps apply to any closed polyline based objects in this software.
