  2. Mixed decimal place

    I'm using InforDrainage 2023.1 and there are mixed numbers after decimal point. In profile view, there are five digit after decimal point which is unnecessary.

  3. Slowness of InfoDrainage

    My infoDrainage file is about 1600 kb, but opening this file takes me 35 - 50 min! There are no images or any kind of background files, but still it takes years to open! Not sure the exact cause for this slowness! All other modelling software running/opening very fast in the same machine, except InfoDrainage! Any suggestion will be helpful.

  5. Provide Hydraulic Results in Civil 3D

    As a Drainage Design user, I want to annotate the various Hydraulic results in plan and in profile within Civil 3D. I would like these results to automatically appear from my InfoDrainage design results.

  7. Infiltration Basins

    The output tables for ponds doesn't include any infiltration outputs where the pond is an infiltration basin. The graphs show that there is infiltration but MicroDrainage used to include infiltration in the output table

  8. Velocity and proportional velocity to be shown on Tables

    When designing sewers a critical design criteria is the pipe velocity when full or at design discharge rate. It makes designing sewers quite iterative without this included

  11. InfoDrainage - Split subcatchments option for Laurenson runoff routing method

    It is industry best practice to split up the subcatchments in a model into their pervious and impervious areas when adopting the Laurenson (or RAFTS) runoff routing method ie U = 2 and U = 0. The current workflow to achieve this is to setup the model with 2 subcatchments representing the impervious and pervious surfaces within a subcatchment. Existing Innovyze software (ICM and XPSWMM/XPSTORM) provide the user the ability to split the area of a catchment up into a number of different runoff surfaces. A feature like this would be great to have for InfoDrainage.

  12. Please can the output drawings be able to be produced in landscape.

    When using the extend view to produce drawings it appears to be only able to undertake in portrait. Also the title block cannot be changed in size which can make the drawings untidy. Finally can there be an option to move the lables around so they do not clash.

  14. Improved tutorial for setting up a network

    InfoDrainage - i am just trailing software and using the metric tutorial. i do not like loading in items from MicroDrainage or AutoCAD and was hoping the tutorial would show how to quickly setup a highway drainage system with pipes/manholes/gullies.

    when asked "was this page helpful" i put thumbs down, hoping to get a chance to say the above but i cannot type in the feedback form. please update chapter 2 "creating the network" so that new users can setup a simple network - all ive done is click buttons to load random data and do not feel like i…

  17. InfoDrainage - Re-Ordering Tables

    Please can you add an ability to manually adjust the order of Junctions and Connections as the tables quickly become difficult to follow. The automatic re-ordering seems to reset as soon as you make any changes!

  18. Replace Area/SWC with an imported Outline

    At the moment you can replace areas with Free Form outlines. It would be good if there could be an ability to add additional points or replace with an imported outline

  20. Formatting of Reports

    The output reports from Infordrainage, are not set to fit the page and as such, there is a lot of "white space" left on the outputs. At present, there are no formatting options to change this. It makes the drainage report look a bit untidy.
