This option is used to create new one point strings at another strings IPs (Intersection Points).
Firstly a string is required to be picked.
Pick and accept on the string.
The IPs are created as the string is accepted.
Note: Points are only created at the IPs (Intersection Points) along the string, no between points along straights or arcs.
The image below shows the original string removed from the view and only the 4 IPs that have been created are on the screen, no between points as stated before.
