Parcel editor: finish sketch\finish part tools are not available while working with fabric feature classes,

I couldn’t figure out how the finish sketch\finish part can be performed when an adjacent polygon is digitized as shown in the screenshots below.

The finish sketch\finish part tools are available while working with regular feature classes.

Thank you

Best regards

The reason you are getting this message because the ACTIVE (buildable) construction lines dont form a closed loop. After marking all those lines unbuildable, you are not left with a closed loop. The construction environment will only build a parcel from a closed loop. You need to figure out how to get a closed loop for the parcel you want to build and mark the rest of the lines you dont want as unbuildable. That means you may need to digitise in additional lines for the shared boundary (which was marked unbuildable). Once again - parcels in the parcel fabric are ONLY EVER created from closed loops.

Please take a look at the following tutorials to learn how to work with parcels in a parcel fabric

Tutorial: Get started with parcel fabric editing—Help | ArcGIS for Desktop

Tutorial: Create new parcels in the parcel fabric—Help | ArcGIS for Desktop 

The parcels in the parcel fabric work with the parcel editor toolbar - not with the standard editor toolbar.

Thanks Christine,

I’m aware that the parcel editor toolbar is different from the standard editor toolbar. What really makes the fabric complicated is when working with its editing.

Here I just wanted to know how I can finish the sketch! That’s all.

You dont "finish a sketch" in the parcel fabric. You close a traverse.  Any data created in the parcel fabric should reflect the legal recorded document. That means that the user must close a parcel (finish a sketch) The user must look at the misclose of the parcel to determine if there were any blunders in the parcel data entry (parcel misclose is very important - the standard editor does not report parcel misclose)

All dimensions must reflect the legal recorded document - that means these dimensions must be entered and controlled by the user.

Thanks for the elaboration

How the behavior below can be explained (please, have a look on the screenshots):

  • The “construct from parent” tool is applied for Parcel #6
  • A polygon that shares one of its boundaries with parcels#6 is digitized and the sketch is finished by the “delete rows”.
  • Digitizing an adjacent polygon to parcel#6 with this approach causes Parcel#6 to be duplicated! Why polygon#37 is automatically digitized on top of parcel#6?

Hi

The Construct from parent command will build all active lines. So the parcel you clicked on and did Construct from parent is pulled in and now active. that is why it was duplicated. The Construct from parent command will attempt to build parcels from a network of active lines. What you can do is right click the lines that you dont want used in the build process and click "unbuildable". This removes them from the build process. However, looking at your workflow, why dont you just enter/digitize in the parcel as standalone (use New parcel) and them join it in to the adjacent boundaries in the fabric?

Hope this helps...

Many thanks Christine for the prompt help,

  • The “un-buildable” approach sounds not to work. Please, have a look on the screenshots below

  • The advantage of “construct from parent” command over the “new parcel” is that the shared boundary can be digitized automatically if the sketch is finished with “delete row” command.

Thanks Christine,

My aim here is to avoid digitizing the shared boundary! It appears that there is no way to do so within the capacity of the fabric editor.
