Using the Edit Vertex tool in ArcScene, you can modify the individual vertices and segments of line and polygon features. To use the Edit Vertex tool, click on a feature; the pointer changes from a black arrow to a white arrow to indicate you have activated vertex editing mode. This mode is also indicated by a highlighted Edit Vertices button on the 3D Editor toolbar. Now, the individual vertices and segments of a feature are selected and ready to edit. You can edit interactively in the view or use the Edit Sketch Properties window to manually edit vertex attributes.
How to edit vertices of existing features in ArcScene using the Edit Vertex tool
- Click the Edit Vertex button on the 3D Editor toolbar.
- Click the feature whose vertices you want to edit. You are now in vertex editing mode. If it is a line or a polygon, the vertices are highlighted in the selected feature, as well as the properties for each vertex are populated in the Edit Sketch Properties window. Selected vertices appear as green circles in the 3D view.
The table below lists tasks that you can perform while in vertex editing mode:
