Use a String Inquire to check the details of the new point.

Note: The newly created point, is only a single point not associated or attached with the string that was selected in the create option.

If a second point is to be created the option is still active in the project until another option is selected, or it is cancelled. The user can select the next string and use the option again.

Note: The Chainage is related to the selected string.

Note: Turn the model onto the screen if the point is not shown.
