Reshape Polygon Tool

Open Table of Contents

Target layer: Polygon

Description:  Draw a polygon, the start point should be in the polygon to be reshaped (target polygon). When the sketch is finished (on double click) the existing polygon that contains the start point of the sketched polygon is reshaped with the sketched polygon according to the priority set in the Control Panel or using the Hot Key "A" when the tool is active:

Advantages

Hot Keys (Pressing these keys when the tool is active will allow changing  the parameters used by the function)

Attribute Updates: The attributes of the original features will be preserved

Snapping: Supported. Uses the standard Editor snapping settings. For better results do not snap to features from currently edited layer.

Example:  

Input Priority = "Low" 

Only the gap is added to the target polygon

Priority = "High"

The target polygon is reshaped with entire sketched polygon. The portions of the existing polygons overlapping the sketch polygon are erased
