When I want to create corridor, I receive a prompt to locate corridor baseline.  What is a "corridor baseline"?   In SS2 there is a separate menu called Modeler in the PowerCivil window, but now this menu is missing in SS3.


The corridor baseline that you are prompted to select is the horizontal alignment; select the alignment from your graphics. Modeler > Roadway Designer has been replaced with the OpenRoads Corridor Modeling command.

There is a video available which demonstrates a workflow for creating a corridor using the OpenRoads tools.  You may find this video helpful as an introduction to OpenRoads:
