Feature Editing Options dialog box
 
 
 

Use this dialog box to set options for automatically checking out features and updating feature sources, whether features are checked out as drawing objects or geospatial features, how to split polygonal features, and how often you are prompted to check in features.

To specify Feature Edit Options

MAPFEATUREEDITTOOLS

Check Out And Update Features

Specify options for automatically checking out features and updating feature source.

Automatically Check Out Features When Edited.

Specify that features are automatically checked out when you edit them.

Automatically Update Feature Source With Edits

Specify that edits to features are automatically reflected in the feature source

Feature Checkout Options

Specify whether features are checked out as drawing objects or geospatial features.

AutoCAD Drawing Objects

Specify that features are checked out as AutoCAD drawing objects.

NoteFeatures checked out as AutoCAD drawing objects will be listed as custom features when you use the LIST command. In addition, custom LISP applications may not work with custom features.
Geospatial Features

Specify that features are checked out as geospatial features.

This setting determines the way you work with your data.

Features checked out as AutoCAD drawing objects Features checked out as geospatial features

Allows you to use many common ACAD editing commands

Allows you to use some common ACAD editing commands in addition to geospatial feature-specific editing commands (for example, MAPFEATURESPLIT and MAPFEATUREMERGE)

Edited features represented as AutoCAD geometries (for example, closed polylines are used to represent polygonal features)

Edited features are represented as geospatial geometries (for example, MAPPOLYGONS).

Most existing custom or third-party editing applications (LISP, VB or ObjectARX) should continue to work. Some may require minor updates.

Supports multipart (multipolygons, multilines, and multipoints) geospatial features and editing, such as the Hawaiian islands.

Some existing AutoCAD Map 3D editing commands will continue to work on features, for example, rubbersheeting (ADERSHEET).

Preserves and allows you to edit M and Z values.

Allows you to use feature styling.

Allows you to use feature styling.

Split Prompt Options

Specify how features are created after a split and whether these prompts display during the split operation.

Feature Geometry

Select Create New to split features into two parts. Select Create Multi-Part to split features into more than two parts.

Feature ID

Select Generate New Feature ID to create a new unique ID for each feature that results from the split. Select Use Existing to use the ID of the original feature for all resulting features.

Do Not Show These Prompts When Executing Split

Select this option to use the settings in this dialog box for all split operations. When you split a feature, you will see only the prompt for drawing a new line for the split or selecting an existing line or polygon within the feature to define the split.

If you do not select this option, all prompts will appear, but the default values for the prompts will be what you specify in this dialog box.

Other Options

Specify whether or not you are prompted to check in features and how often.

Prompt To Check In Every

Specify that you will be prompted to check in features at intervals of the specified value.
