Edit Features

There are two methods for editing features in Inspector. A user may NOT edit the Shape field of an existing feature.

Inspector Tool

While performing inspections using the Inspection tool, you can select a feature and edit its non-spatial attributes. When you have selected a feature to be inspected, the ArcFM Inspector window is displayed (Figure 1).

  1. Click the link at the top to display the attributes for the currently selected feature (SupportStructure:SUPPT916 in Figure 1).
  2. The feature's attributes are displayed on the Selection tab (Figure 2), and you may edit values for any non-spatial attributes (i.e., NOT the Shape field).
  3. Click Update on the Selection tab to save any changes.
