Assigning/Unassigning Fault Sticks

You can unassign fault stick(s) from one fault and assign them to another fault.

Similarly, if you have created fault sticks as "Unassigned Sticks (TWT/TVD)", you can assign multiple sticks to a fault at the same time.

Unassign fault stick(s)

Unassign fault stick(s)
  1. Right click on an assigned fault stick and select Unassign fault stick. Alternatively, after right clicking you can press U to unassign a fault stick from its current fault.
  2. To select more than one fault stick, right click on a fault stick and select Pick "New Fault" to enable the picking mode.
    1.  Press Ctrl and click on multiple fault sticks. 
    2.  Right click and select Unassign 'X' fault sticks. Alternatively,  press Esc to disable picking mode and press U to unassign.
  3. The unassigned fault sticks will be under the Unassigned Sticks (TWT/TVD) item in the Fault tab.

In the Unassigned Sticks (TWT/TVD) item in the Fault tab, you will see the Number of Sticks that are unassigned in the Details Panel. Computed surfaces are not created for unassigned fault sticks. You can right-click the unassigned fault stick item in the Control Panel and click Export "Unassigned Fault Sticks" to save these fault sticks into a .dat extension file and then load the file in the future to view the fault lines in the data.

Note: For unassigned fault sticks, you cannot change the ownership or edit the name. If you delete an "unassigned sticks (TWT/TVD)" item from the project database, it will get recreated when you open the session.
