As you clean up a map,
you can specify how to treat the original objects after the cleanup
operation is complete.
- Modify Original Objects — Uses
the original layer and as much of the original data as possible.
For example, linear objects are extended where necessary.
- Retain Original And
Create New Objects — Keeps the original objects
and creates new objects on a layer you specify. For example, to
extend an undershoot, new linear objects are created on the specified
layer for the undershoot and target linear objects, and the originals
- Delete Original And
Create New Objects — Deletes all the original
objects and creates new objects on a layer you specify. For example,
the original undershoot is deleted, and a new linear object is created
that extends to the required location.
you create new objects, existing object data and database links
are copied to the new objects. All created objects are assigned
the current value of the ELEVATION system variable.
Converting Objects to Polylines
You can specify whether
to convert lines, arcs, and 3D polylines to 2D polylines, and convert
circles to arcs or 2D polylines. If you convert arcs to polylines,
the polyline is created using a true arc, not a set of straight
line segments. If you convert a circle to a polyline, the polyline
is created using two true arcs, not a set of straight line segments.
Use these conversion options in the following cases:
- You plan to use the results of the drawing
cleanup operation in another program that accepts only polylines.
- You want to modify the line width of
the arcs, circles, or lines so you can use them in a thematic map.
You can assign line width only to polylines.
Note If you convert objects to different entity
types during the cleanup process, classified objects may be modified
so that they no longer meet the object class definition and will
