Creating a point feature by clicking the map
Points are the simplest features to create. Simply click a point template in the Create Features window and the Point tool is automatically activated. Click the map where you want to add the point. You can right-click the map or use snapping to help you create points at exact locations.
As you move around the map to place the feature, the pointer's on-screen feedback is what you see is what you get (WSIWYG)—showing the same symbol that will be used for the new point feature.
- Click a point feature template in the Create Features window.
- Click the Point tool on the Create Features window.
- Optionally, use snapping to help you create points at exact locations relative to other features.
Click the map to create the point.
The point is created on your map and is selected.
