I’m at a loss attempting to discern the functionality of ArcGIS for AutoCAD R365. One of the strengths of AutoCAD is the ability to create or “screen-digitize” features from aerial imagery. I have replicated a number of pad sites and constructed a feature class table to capture information necessary to identify individual pads.
Unfortunately there is not a process to export this feature class into ArcGIS with the tabular data accompanying the vector data. Additionally, the functionality of selecting a pad and having it identified by opening the table, in ArcGIS for AutoCAD, fails to work. I cannot move about the Drawing File selecting pads and adding them to a selection set that interacts with any records in the table. Nor can I move about the Drawing File with the table window open, as I can in ArcGIS.
My experience with this software has been less than stellar. And the kind, ESRI folks have not seen fit to answer my request for Tech Support for the second day running. I’m bewildered at the lack of this program’s core functionality. How it fails to mimic or replicate the basic functions prevalent in an ArcGIS project is difficult to fathom.
I would welcome any enlightened suggestions to remedy this situation.
