Hello,

I am working on editing the street (line) features in a shapefile. I have a street that is in three separate segments but identified with one ID (See screenshot below).
[ATTACH=CONFIG]31081[/ATTACH]

Using the "split" editing at the ends of any of these separate segments results in the message:

The feature could not be split.
Split point results in a zero length polyline.
The operation was attempted on an empty geometry.

Any tips on how I may be able to split these?

Thank you,
David

Use the Explode Tool instead.  They are multi part features.  Explode will separate them out.

In fact you can select ALL on your streets and run the command and it will automatically separate all such features.

Use the Explode tool on the Advanced Editing Toolbar during an edit session or use the Multipart to Singlepart tool in the Data Management Toolbox | Features Toolset in ModelBuilder or outside of an edit session.
