Creating a segment at a right angle (90 degrees) to the previous segment
Right Angle limits a segment to be at a 90-degree, right angle to the previous segment. You might use the Right Angle construction method to create building footprints or other features that have square corners.
These steps can be used to create vertices in either lines or polygons:
To create a vertex in a line
Click a line feature template in the Create Features window and click the Line tool .
To create a vertex in a polygon
Click a polygon feature template in the Create Features window and click the Polygon tool .
- Create a segment using any construction method.
- Click Right Angle on the Editor toolbar construction method palette.
- Click to place the vertex at the endpoint of the segment.
