In an edit session, I need to create a series of rectangles that are 950' x 225'. In a brand new shapefile, I have launched an edit session, selected Rectangle under Construction Tools, and right-clicked the mouse in order to access the direction, length, and width parameters. Problem is, the parameters are grayed out. Does anyone have an idea why that might be?

I believe John's solution regarding graphics will work for you. Draw a graphic square in data view, right click for properties, and set the height and width, then convert graphics to shape on the drawing toolbar. Regards, Jim
