Surely surfaces and splines are two separate things. If you create a forest scatter on a surface (polygons) and go to custom edit mode, you will get a warning

Switching to Custom Edit mode will disable Area/Distribution parameters. Are you sure?

But the part I find confusing is you say you cannot find the option to distribute along the spline any more... but you used a surface, not a spline???

If you have spline on a surface and the surface has a forest pro scatter, in custom edit mode. Just add another FP scatter for the spline. You can add many scatters to a single surface or spline and some can use custom edit and others not

my bad i think it was my wording so i went to the original documentation, its ALONG A PATH function - see attached
So i create items on a surface and do a custom edit and then distribute it along a path with this feature.  I cant find this anymore in the beta.
