Using Interactive Mode to Review and Confirm Corrections
Concept Procedure Quick Reference

To review errors before correcting them

  1. Click Tools tabMap Edit panelClean Up. At the Command prompt, enter mapclean.
  2. In the Drawing Cleanup - Select Objects dialog box, select the objects to clean and the objects to anchor. Click Next.
  3. In the Select Actions Page, select the cleanup actions to perform by adding them to the Selected Actions list. Specify the cleanup parameters for each action.
  4. To review errors before correcting them, in the Options area, select Interactive.
  5. On the left side of the dialog box, click Error Markers in the list.

    You can also continue clicking Next to set all the parameters for the cleanup operation. After you click Next on the Cleanup Methods page, you can set the markers.

  6. In the Error Markers Page, specify the size, shape, and color of the error markers to use for each cleanup action. Also specify whether to remove markers from earlier operations or remove markers after this cleanup.
  7. To save your settings in a profile, click Save.
  8. Click Finish to run the cleanup process and review the list of detected errors in the Drawing Cleanup Errors dialog box.

    In the Drawing Cleanup Errors dialog box, the first cleanup action with detected errors is selected. All other actions are shaded. Cleanup actions are listed in the order specified on the Drawing Cleanup - Selected Actions dialog box. The icons to the left of the action name show you what the error marker for that action looks like.

    All cleanup actions are represented in the Drawing Cleanup Errors dialog box, with the exception of Simplify Objects, which is not an interactive operation. For short objects, AutoCAD Map 3D divides the detected errors into three groups: Short Degenerate Objects, Short Line Objects, and Short Polyline Objects. If you are cleaning up zero length objects, AutoCAD Map 3D divides the errors into two groups: Zero Length Line Objects and Zero Length Polyline Objects.

  9. You can address all errors for each cleanup action as follows:
    • To correct all errors for the selected action, click Fix All.
      Note Corrections are made after you finish reviewing and correcting all errors.
    • To display error markers for all errors for the selected action, making them easily visible in the map, click Mark All.
    • To ignore all errors for a selected action and remove any error markers, click Remove All.
    • To go to the next cleanup action in the list without correcting errors, click Next Action.
  10. To address errors one at a time, click the plus (+) next to the cleanup action. Select Error 1 of... and choose an option:
    • To correct the current error and go to the next one, click Fix.
      Note Corrections appear after you finish reviewing and correcting all errors.
    • To leave a marker on the current error, click Mark.
    • To go to the next error in the list without making a correction and remove any error marker, click Remove.
    • To skip an error, click Next.
  11. You can highlight and zoom to errors in the map by setting the following options under Zoom Settings:
    • To zoom to selected errors dynamically, select Auto Zoom.
    • To indicate the percent of the drawing display that selected error occupies, enter a value in the Zoom % box. For example, specify 100% to zoom the display to the extents of the selected error, or specify 60% to display more of the drawing outside the selected error. Specify 0 to maintain the current zoom level.
    • To zoom to the selected error, clear the Auto Zoom check box and click Zoom.
  12. Click Close to make the corrections to your map.
