Function Groups

Updated May 05, 2016

This article applies to:
  • Terrain 3D
  • Terrain Forestry
  • RoadEng Civil
  • RoadEng Forestry
  • Softree Optimal

RoadEng®, Terrain Tools®, and Softree Optimal products have certain features; we classify these optional features by function group.

If you do not have a password or hardware key, then only a few function groups are permitted without entering Demonstration Mode. To view or change the enabled function groups:

1. Select Module | Setup from the menu bar; an Options Dialogue box appears. Click on the General tab.

2. Click on the Menus button to open the Menu Customization Dialogue box.

Figure 1: Function groups displayed in the menu customization dialogue.

Function group items with a red circle before them are permitted in Demonstration Mode only. A checkmark beside an item indicates it has been enabled.

Function Groups Required for Examples

All required function groups are listed prior to each example in this manual. If you do not have permission to use all the required function groups, you may wish to skip the example. Also note that some function groups may be disabled even if you have permission to use them – this is so users with a lesser license can still do the example.

If you attempt to open a tutorial file containing function groups that are not permitted in your licensed software you will be prompted with the message box below:

To continue the example you must respond “Keep all file functions and revert to demo mode”. In demo mode printing and saving are disabled.
