About the parcel fabric editing environment
This topic applies to ArcEditor and ArcInfo only.
In ArcGIS 10, parcels in the fabric can be edited directly in a standard edit session in automatic edit mode or in a fabric job in manual edit mode.
When working in automatic edit mode, parcels are interacted with and edited directly in ArcMap. Edits are tracked as "mini" jobs in the job book .
When working in manual edit mode, parcels are interacted with and edited in open fabric jobs. Jobs are saved in the parcel fabric job book and can be reopened for continued work at any time. Jobs can be automatically created using the Modify command on theParcel Editor menu on the Parcel Editor toolbar, or they can be manually created and customized using the Create Job command on the Parcel Editor menu.
You can specify the type of edit mode you would like to work with on the Parcel Editor Options dialog box, which can be accessed by clicking Parcel Editor > Options on the Parcel Editor toolbar.
You can change your edit mode at anytime. For example, if you want to start creating jobs for your edits, simply turn on manual mode by clicking Manual (allows edits to be managed through the job book) on the Parcel Editor Options dialog box.
