  4. If necessary, start editing.
  5. Verify that you have representations in your target feature class.

    You can only reshape one representation at a time.

  7. Click the Reshape Representation button Reshape Representation.
  8. Click to draw a sketch that represents the new representation shape of the selected feature.

    The sketch must cross the existing feature's shape two times.

    The representation is reshaped.
