Set Edit Task

The ArcFM Template Favorite Tool provides two edit tasks that save time when creating multiple features. In the Template Favorite Tool, you can select either Radial (star) or a Dot-to-Dot (construction point) edit task.

Create ArcFM Feature

This is the default edit task when creating a new template favorite. Select this edit task when simply placing features.


The Radial edit task is used with a template favorite and provides connecting spans (e.g., secondary overhead conductor) to several end points when the user sketches a single line. The sketch line connects the starting point (a transformer) to any number of end points (service points) radiating from the start point. This multi-part linear feature has n-1 parts where each linear feature starts at the start point and ends at points 2 through n.


Use the ArcFM Dot-to-Dot edit task to create a multi-part sketch that defines the location of features in a template favorite. Once the locations are defined, Dot-to-Dot automatically places the features on the map. Dot-to-Dot incorporates the ArcGIS context menu Sketch tools such as Length, Angle, Deflection, Absolute XY, and Parallel.
