Merge Features

You can merge two or more features of the same class into one feature. You can also merge features with drawing objects. The resulting feature property values are determined by rules you specify in the Split and Merge Rules dialog box.

Open or create a drawing using a map template

Features you add are transformed to this coordinate system

Connect to the feature data store and create a version, if the organization requires it

The type of feature property you select determines what types of rules are available

Find and select the features to merge

By default, features are checked out automatically when you edit them, so this step may be unnecessary

Find and select any number of drawing objects to merge with one or more features

You can specify a new or existing feature ID for the resulting feature

Queue your edits to save to the source all at once, or save them as you work

Save your changes to the feature source and release any locks
