Duplicates locates objects that share the same start
and end points as well as all other points within the tolerance
distance. You can delete one of the objects. You can include the
following object types:
- Linear objects
not use Delete Duplicates with polygon
topology because it deletes important topology data.
- The coordinate locations of objects and
the number of vertices (i.e., object geometry) are considered when
checking for duplicates, therefore, objects with different directions,
objects of different types (for example, lines and polylines), and
objects with different properties (for example, linetype and color)
can be considered as duplicates.
- You can choose to consider Z-value (elevation)
when checking for duplicates. For blocks, text, and mtext, you can
also choose whether to consider object rotation.
- Objects with the same geometry, but on
different layers, are considered duplicates. Use the Select
Objects page to select objects on one layer at a time.
This action deletes
any objects within the tolerance. Move your cursor over the image
to see the results.
deleting duplicate edges that are polyline segments, the command deletes
lines and arcs before breaking polylines. The command removes only objects
with the same geometry, even if the objects are on different layers.
