  1. True Ground Profile on Long Section Exports

    It would be very useful if there was a way for the true ground profile to also be exported on long sections. Currently, when exporting long sections from microdrainage, the true ground levels are only shown at manhole locations and a straight line is used to replicate ground level between the manholes. Could a 3D terrrain file possibly be loaded into microdrainage so that the true ground profile is shown when exporting long sections?

  2. InfoDrainage - Time of entry to be called time of entry, not time of concentration

    Te has specific meaning in the UK when using the rational method (modified).
    Tc also has speific meaning (Te + sumTf).
    It would be better if the software wants the user to input a Te, that it calls it Te. At the moment it calls the Te Time of concentration, which is very confusing.

  3. manhole and pipe size files

    when I start a new network, the criteria automatically selects my default manhole and pipe size file, can you change it so when importing a file for the first time it selects my standard default files, older versions did select the default file

  6. Clash detection between pipe networks

    Can wall thicknesses be added to pipes and manholes to check clash detections

  7. InfoDrainage - replace stormwater outline with DXF (or other similar file)

    Would be useful to be able to 'replace outline' of a stormwater control by importing a polygon (e.g. DXF, SHP etc), rather than the existing options which are just to redraw in ID only.
    Every project there seems to be need to replace an outline from another drawing (as architechtural desisns evolve). At teh moment have to re-set up the control each time this occurs.

  8. Status Bar to report more significant figures

    The status bar currently only displays levels (ground model level, water depth) to 1 decimal place. 2 Decimal places would be much more useful, Especially to ensure a node is at a low point or in the gutter invert..

  9. Run same return period with multiple climate change allowances

    When running the simulation wizard I would like to be able to run the same return period with multiple climate change allowances to enable a single analysis covering all scenarios. This will avoid needing to adjust inputs & rerunning the network multiple times to cover no CC, upper & lower CC limits.

  10. Enable drawnet manhole changes

    Enable the manholes assigned to impermeable areas on drawnet to be changed.
    It is currently not possible to change the manhole when editing a network meaning the areas have to be deleted then recreated. Being able to change the manhole would save a lot of time.

  12. Switch design return periods when running cascade analysis

    I would like to be able to build a single cascade model & able run it for various design return periods instead of needing to create separate cascade models for each return period.
