Editing a Node
Concept Procedure Quick Reference

To edit a node

  1. Open the drawing where the topology was created and load the topology.
  2. Do one of the following:
    • For a node topology, in Map Explorer, right-click the topology name. Click Move Nodes.
    • For a network or polygon topology, type mapmn at the command line.
  3. When prompted, click the nodes to move.
  4. Press Enter when you finish selecting nodes.
  5. Specify the base point or displacement.
  6. Specify the second point of displacement.

    The two points you specify define a displacement vector that indicates how far the selected objects are to be moved and in what direction. If you press Enter at the Specify Second Point of Displacement prompt, the first point is interpreted as relative X,Y,Z displacement. For example, if you specify 2,3 for the base point and press Enter at the next prompt, the object moves 2 units in the X direction and 3 units in the Y direction from its current position.

In a node topology, if the node's new location is the same as an existing node, specify which node to keep. In a network topology, specify whether to join the links and which node to keep.
