To modify the resistance or direction of a link
Concept Procedure Quick Reference
 
 
 

To reposition a node at the end point of a link

  1. Open the drawing where the topology was created and load the topology.
  2. Do one of the following:
    • For a network topology, in Map Explorer, right-click the topology name. Click Move End Of Link.
    • For a polygon topology, type MAPMEL on the command line.
  3. When prompted, click the node (end point) to move.
  4. When prompted, click the location of the new end point.

    If the new location is the same as an existing end point in the topology, specify whether to join the links and which node to keep.

To reposition a link

  1. Open the drawing where the topology was created and load the topology.
  2. Do one of the following:
    • For a network topology, in Map Explorer, right-click the topology name. Click Move Links.
    • For a polygon topology, type MAPML on the command line.
  3. When prompted, click the link to reposition.
  4. When prompted, click any additional links to reposition.
  5. Press Enter when you finish selecting links.
  6. Specify the base point or displacement.
  7. Specify the second point of displacement.

    The two points define a displacement vector that indicates how far the selected objects are moved and in what direction. If you press Enter at the Specify Second Point of Displacement prompt, the first point is interpreted as relative X,Y,Z displacement. For example, if you specify 2,3 for the base point and press Enter at the next prompt, the object moves 2 units in the X direction and 3 units in the Y direction from its current position.

To join two links, break a link, or reverse a link's direction

  1. Open the drawing where the topology was created and load the topology.
  2. Do one of the following:
    • For a network topology, in Map Explorer, right-click the topology name. Click a menu option.
    • To join two links in a polygon topology, type MAPJL on the command line. To break a link in a polygon topology, type MAPBL on the command line. You cannot reverse a link's direction in a polygon topology.

      Follow the command line prompts.
