Today, my week-long project had to be restarted. To be honest it was my mistake and I didn't prepare back-ups so I take full responsibility as a user.
My project requires over 6,000 fire hydrants to be classed into 4 different types.
Single feature editing is not efficient, field calculator seemed a better/optimal solution.
"show all records" was selected instead of "show selected records".
All fire hydrants types were overwritten to the one calculated value.
Restarted my project and have considered work-arounds such as creating clones, then re-organize values to match original, etc.
Can we have a discard feature applied to field calculator so similar workflows can be optimized instead of weighted-down by work-arounds and alternatives.
If it is not rocket-science,how difficult would it be to apply single-feature-edit's discard edit function to field calculator?
One ESRI fix trickles down countless time saved for all users.
