I have a quick editing question. I have a main line (street) from which I want to extend other small lines to reach some points (manholes), but I want to keep just one feature (the main line). I can't use the extent tool, because it works only with line-line case.
ps: I am using ArcGis 10 (unfortunately;P )
One way to do it is to create a new feature (the short line from your street line to the manhole point). Then select both your new features and the street line a select "merge" from the editor drop down menu. It will prompt you to select which records attributes to keep. In your case you would keep the street line attributes. The result will be one feature for all your line work. I would be interested to know if there is a easier way to accomplish this.
Hope this helps,
In the dialog box asking you which feature's attributes to keep, uncheck the "Merge into a single COGO line" box.
