Splitting a line into an equal number of parts

The Split command on the Editor toolbar allows you to split a line into an equal number of new features. For example, you can use this Split option to break a line into pieces that are the same length. This functionality is similar to the Divide command available in previous ArcGIS releases.

  1. Click the Edit tool Edit Tool on the Editor toolbar and click the feature.
  2. Click the Editor menu and click Split.
  3. Click the Into Equal Parts split option and type the number of parts.
  4. Click OK.

    The line is split, where Split updates the shape of the existing feature and creates one or more new features using the default attribute values for the feature class.
