Adding a Polygon
Concept Procedure Quick Reference
 
 
 

To add a polygon to a polygon topology using existing linework

  1. Open the drawing where the polygon topology was created and load the topology.

    To add a polygon to a polygon topology, the current drawing must be the drawing where the topology was created.

  2. Do one of the following:
    • In Map Explorer, right-click the topology name. Click Add Polygon.
    • Type mapap on the command line.
  3. In the map, select the border objects of the polygons to add.
  4. Press Enter when you finish selecting polygons.
  5. If you have blocks defined in the drawing, you are prompted to specify a block to use for the centroid. Press Enter to use ACAD_POINT, or type a block name and press Enter.

To add a polygon to a polygon topology by creating new linework

  1. Open the drawing where the polygon topology was created and load the topology.
  2. On the command line, type MAPIL.
  3. When prompted, specify the location for a new link. The link must define a polygon.
