Copy Boundary (Multiple)

Similar to the Copy Boundary function, the Copy Boundary (Multiple) option can be used to create multiple copies of Material boundaries or Piezometric boundaries. The copies will be created along the slope/model at equal increments. The increment is defined from the "Copy from" to the "copy to" point.

You cannot create a copy of the External boundary, Water Table or Tension Crack boundary, because only ONE of these can be defined for a Slide2 model.

To use Copy Boundary (Multple):

  1. Select Boundaries > Edit > Copy Boundary (Multiple) from the menu.
  2. Use the mouse to select the boundary(s) you would like to copy.
  3. You may select multiple boundaries if desired.
  4. When you are finished selecting, press Enter or right-click and select Done Selection.
  5. You will then be prompted to enter a base point. Use the mouse or enter the x,y coordinates of the base point in the prompt line.
  6. After the base point is entered, if you move the mouse, you will see an outline of your selected boundary(s) following the mouse. Enter a second point with the mouse or the keyboard, and the boundary(s) will be copied to the new location.
  7. You will then be prompted to enter the number of copies. These subsequent copies will be copied to the slope at an equal increment.


  • To define a relative distance for the copy, enter {0,0} as the base point in the prompt line, and the relative distance as the second point. For example, if you wanted a copy of a boundary 5 meters above and 10 meters to the right of the original boundary, enter {0,0} as the base point, and {5,10} as the second point.
  • If you do not know the relative distance, then you can enter a vertex of the original boundary as the base point, and the new coordinates of the equivalent vertex on the copied boundary, as the second point.

Right-Click Shortcut

Copy Boundary (Multiple) is also available as a right-click option for individual boundaries. This works as follows:

  1. Locate the cursor over a boundary that you wish to copy.
  2. Click the RIGHT mouse button, and the boundary will be "selected".
  3. A popup menu will appear, from which you can select the Copy Boundary (Multiple) option.
  4. Select Copy Boundary (Multiple) and then complete steps 4-6 described above.
