  2. When prompted, select the object or objects to convert to features. Press Enter.

    All selected objects are converted into a single feature. To create multiple features, perform this operation on one object at a time.

  3. When prompted to erase the drawing object, do one of the following:

      To add information to the feature, see Editing Features using the Data Table.

  4. Check in the new features.
