Editing profile view elements

Adjacent profile view elements are connected through nodes and lines. When lines and points intersect (as in the intersection of a flight path and a vertical), a node is present. When a node is selected, the node selection is of a higher priority than the corresponding line endpoint. When a node is selected, the selection envelope of the point is identified by the four small vertices of the selection envelope, as shown in the image below.

When a line is selected, the endpoints of the line are identified by the filled boxes at either end of the line, as shown in the image below.

  1. Start ArcMap.

  3. On the main menu, click Customize > Toolbars > Aeronautical Terminal Procedures.
  4. Click the Edit Instrument Approach Profile button Edit Instrument Approach Profile on the Aeronautical Terminal Procedures toolbar.
  5. Select a profile element.

    Select more than one element by pressing and holding the CTRL key on the keyboard, then selecting additional elements.

  6. Drag the element to move it.
  7. Drag a control handle to resize most elements.
  8. Right-click the element and click Properties to edit the font, position, size, and symbol of the element.

    Most text elements can be edited inside this dialog box.


    If you make the font size too large for the existing tray (usually larger than a 6 pt. font size), you will need to increase the default tray element height in the profile settings.

  9. Double-click any text element to access the text editor.

    You can also modify the text in missed approach boxes.
