Step 1: Selecting and Anchoring Objects
Concept Procedure Quick Reference
 
 
 

Start by selecting the objects to include in the cleanup. You can automatically select all objects or select objects manually.

You also select the objects to anchor. Anchored objects are reference points and are not altered or moved; objects being cleaned are moved towards anchored objects.

In addition, you can filter object selection by layer and object class so that only objects that belong to the specified layers and object classes are selected.

Example: Select all objects on the Roads layer for cleanup, and anchor survey points in the Monuments object class so that they maintain their accuracy.

Note In general, you can clean up linear objects only (lines, arcs, circles, and polylines), although a few cleanup actions support additional object types, including points, blocks, text, and mtext. Anchoring supports these additional object types. Any unsupported object types are not cleaned up or anchored.
