Use the Modify TIN Data Area interactive tool to toggle TIN triangles on and off. This tool helps define the data region of the TIN.
When the Modify TIN Data Area tool is selected, the Modify TIN Data Area dialog window will appear. From this dialog window, you can indicate whether you will select individual triangles by pointing at them or if you intend to select groups of triangles that are inside a digitized polygon. For these selected triangles, you can then indicate whether to make them inside or outside or to toggle their current state.
