Equation + Slope Stationing at the same time (requires Z-aware route). Completely reading and writing to the database, which allows for faster generation of sheets, as well as making it easier to move from Lightning to Skyline/AlignDB, and vice versa. New method of selecting your alignment and creating new alignments. Ability to detail the text that is displayed on your sheets by editing the data in Access.
