I am getting a warning in Resolve Road Conflict tool 'Geometry cache tolerance (0.002m) is greater than input tolerance (0.001m)', the result of this does not resolve the conflict between two select roads that both have different hierarchy and I would expect to move away from each other. Has anyone come across this before?
