The Manage Features and Create Attributes, Update Attributes, or Metadata Attributes windows automatically appear when you start an edit session using the Production Start Editing tool.Tip:
If the Create Attributes, Update Attributes, or Metadata Attributes window does not appear when you start an edit session, click the Show/Hide Attributes button on the Manage Features window.
- Click the Update tab on the Manage Features window.
- Select features using one of the following tools:
- The Select Features tool on the Tools toolbar
- The Edit tool on the Production Editing toolbar
- Right-click the feature you want to delete and click Delete.
The feature is removed from the tree view on the Update tab and the geodatabase.
