Right Angle limits a segment to be at a 90-degree, right angle to the previous segment. You might use the Right Angle construction method to create building footprints or other features that have square corners.
- These steps can be used to create vertices in either lines or polygons:
To create a vertex in a line
Click a line feature template in the Create Features window and click the Line tool .
To create a vertex in a polygon
Click a polygon feature template in the Create Features window and click the Polygon tool .
- Create a segment using any construction method.
- Click Right Angle on the Editor toolbar construction method palette.
- Click to place the vertex at the endpoint of the segment.
As you move your pointer, the segment is limited to being at a right angle to the previous segment.
