General Usage Instructions

The Pipes Toolbox application is a bundle of two editors, PipesToolBox and ManholesToolBox.

The Pipes Toolbox editor provides a set of tools that can be used to modify a single pipe or multiple pipes. This includes changing the pipe's name, modify slope and invert elevations, swap parts, show the pipe in plan and profile view among others. All of these tools are available in the the editor's main interface. Similarly, the Manholes Toolbox editor allows the user to quickly modify a single structure or multiple structures, including changing their names, modify depth and sump elevation, swap parts and show the structure in plan and profile view. The ManholesToolBox main interface provides access to these functions.

The program's User Manual, accesible from the menu at the top right corner, explains the tools available in the program.
