This is a sample extension that presents a new toolbar to ArcMap users. The 'Drafting Tools' toolbar streamlines the editing experience for drafting professionals.
Behind the scenes, the storage, editing and display of primitive points, lines and polygons is intelligently managed. Users can commence drafting without needing to pre-create data, define coordinate system settings, set up layer properties, manage edit sessions, select target layers or specify edit tasks.
• An optional tip panel shows detailed help and usage for use each tool
• Point numbers are labeled automatically
• Features and segments can be snapped to points, corners, edges or mid-points of other features and segments.
• Features and segments can be created relative to others (parallel, offset, tangent to, intersection, midpoint, distance from/to, bearing from/to).
Will work with ArcView, ArcEditor or ArcInfo licenses with versions of ArcGIS 9.3, 9.3 sp1, 9.3.1 and 9.3.1 sp1.
PLEASE read the QUICK-START document before starting and remember to turn on the extension to enable the tools on the toolbar!
Enjoy! - ESRI Survey & Engineering Team.
