An active or "live" borehole or cross section is a view window design that shows information in logs based on data in the data tables. All new boreholes created by clicking the File | New Project command or clicking the button are automatically in active mode.
If you open an existing borehole or cross section view and are unsure if it is active or design mode:
Check the Log | Display | Design Mode command or the toolbar button. If the button is depressed () you are in design mode. To change to active mode click this command or button again.
Look in the Property Manager on the View tab and inspect the View Mode option. If this field displays Design Mode you can change to Active Mode by clicking on the Design Mode text and selecting Active Mode from the list.
