I just sent this message to tech support, but I thought I would post it here as well:

Carlson 2016 build 160629 with IntelliCAD 8 8.1.1616.82875.P.VC11.x64.RF81a

 I am looking for a way to have the software automatically draw lines from text like this:

South 00 degrees 00 minutes 30 seconds West 695.80 feet

South 00 degrees 00 minutes 30 seconds West 452.00 feet

South 88 degrees 38 minutes 28 seconds West 1298.85 feet

North 00 degrees 29 minutes 10 seconds East 402.11 feet

North 88 degrees 38 minutes 28 seconds East 400.00 feet

North 36 degrees 52 minutes 44 seconds East 63.62 feet

North 00 degrees 00 minutes 30 seconds East 60.00 feet

North 88 degrees 38 minutes 28 seconds East 200.00 feet

South 00 degrees 00 minutes 30 seconds West 60.00 feet

North 88 degrees 38 minutes 28 seconds East 657.30 feet

Please & thank you.

Try the PDD command.

That requires manual data entry for each course.  I am looking for a way to copy and paste the multiple courses and allow the software to plot a polygon automatically.

Survey > Process Deed File

You'll need to figure out the format of the .PDD file in order to cut and paste your courses.  Unfortunately, the Carlson help article does not give that detail.

I can get it to work by changing the settings to fit the format, almost, that is. 

It doesn't seem to like North, South, East, West.  So I just ran Edit/replace all, with N,S,E,W, and it works.

 

S 00 degrees 00 minutes 30 seconds W 695.80 feet

S 00 degrees 00 minutes 30 seconds W 452.00 feet

S 88 degrees 38 minutes 28 seconds W 1298.85 feet

N 00 degrees 29 minutes 10 seconds E 402.11 feet

N 88 degrees 38 minutes 28 seconds E 400.00 feet

N 36 degrees 52 minutes 44 seconds E 63.62 feet

N 00 degrees 00 minutes 30 seconds E 60.00 feet

N 88 degrees 38 minutes 28 seconds E 200.00 feet

S 00 degrees 00 minutes 30 seconds W 60.00 feet

N 88 degrees 38 minutes 28 seconds E 657.30 feet

I get this far, but I don't know how to proceed from here?

I click SAVE (it tells me there is nothing to save).

I click DRAW (it tells me there is nothing to draw).

EDIT:  disregard this post.  I am tweaking the settings, and I am making progress.  Carry on.

Great!  The only problem is I rarely get deeds in text format, mostly an image or pdf from the registry.

OCR works sometimes, but not 100%

Could you explain how you got the deed reader to work? I was trying to figure this out today on Carlson 2019 and could not figure it out.

 

Thanks

Trent

See my post above.  Whatever format your deed is in, you need to match that in your settings.  If it spells out degrees, minutes, seconds, then change it to that in the reader. 

Also, make sure you make the Column order reads Angles before Distances.  And delete Suffixes and Prefixes in the Lines settings, (to match the above example)

Here's the deed description I am trying to draw using the deed reader. I spelled out degrees, minutes, seconds although there are no seconds, and changed the cardinal directions to N,S,E,W. I changed the column order so angles are before distances. I also deleted suffixes and prefixes in the lines settings. The closest I got was getting Carlson to draw every line with the correct distance but they were all overlapping in the North-South direction. If you have some time to spare do you think you could take a look at the deed I'm using and see if you're able to get the deed reader to recognize the bearings and distances? Thanks for your help.

I really don’t remember.  I never used that feature again.  I just manually type it in.

I loaded your txt file and it plotted fine for me, didn't have to edit or change anything.

Check again.  I don't know why, but when I tried to do it again, everything had defaulted back.   Weird. 

But anyway, your txt file works as is.

@jph Are you using Carlson 2019? Seems like there is some setting for me that prevents it from reading it correctly when I paste the text into the reader.
