Bisectors

You can use the ArcFM Template Favorite Tool to utilize several different lines and bisectors when rotating and offsetting point features. The Template Favorite tool provides the following options: incoming line, outgoing line, acute bisector, obtuse bisector, right-hand side bisector, left-hand side bisector, and absolute (offset only).

To set symbol rotation, right-click the feature in the table of contents and select Properties. Select the Symbology tab and click the Advanced button. Select Rotation.

 

The following examples assume symbol rotation has been set at Arithmetic. They will also respect the geometric setting.

Incoming Line

If you select Incoming, the point will be placed at the user-specified angle of rotation from the incoming line.

Outgoing Line

If you select Outgoing, the point will be placed at the user-specified angle of rotation from the outgoing line.

Acute Bisector

Select Acute Bisector to place the point at an angle from the line which bisects the acute angle.

Obtuse Bisector

Select Obtuse Bisector to place the point at an angle from the line which bisects the obtuse angle.

Left-Hand Side Bisector

Select Left-Hand Side Bisector to place all features on the left side of the sketch line from the From Point. Features will be placed at a user-specified angle to each left-side angle bisector. Since the From and To points do not have angles, the bisector intersects at a 90° angle.

Right-Hand Side Bisector

Select Right-Hand Side Bisector to place all features on the right side of the sketch line from the From Point. Features will be placed at a user-specified angle to each right-side angle bisector. Because the From and To points do not have angles, the bisector intersects at a 90° angle.

Absolute

This option places the value in the Rotation field in the feature's rotation angle field (SymbolRotation in ArcFM's sample data).
