Drop Visual Specification (Production Mapping)
Removes the fields associated with visual specifications from the selected feature layers and feature classes.
The following fields are removed from input data for all applicable visual specifications:
- A field that holds the representation rule number
- An override field associated with the representation to store symbol exception information.
After removing fields, representation rules may still appear in the table of contents until the next time you open the map document in ArcMap.
This tool removes both calculated representations and text strings from the feature layers and feature classes.
