I am finding that the mid-point snap tool is unreliable. It often snaps to a point that is not mid-point and these eroneous snaps are inconsistent - sometimes it snaps to a point that is quite close to the correct mid-point and other times it snaps it somthing that is very obviously not mid. I attach two images, one showing my geometry and one with an example of a bad mid-point.
Thank you, this is useful but I'm not talking about the "midpoint" tool - I'm talking about the "midpoint snapping" tool which I do not believe works in the way you have described and therefore I still believe is producing erroneous results.
Am I correct in assuming that this is the best way to measure to the midpoint of a line or to move an existing feature to a midpoint?
Is there a way to make a feature un-snappable without making it invisible?
Never used the midpoint snapping tool (never heard of it, actually), but are you sure that what you think should be the midpoint actually is? That is, it's not a separate connected segment? You might need to turn off other snapping as well (endpoint, vertex, etc), or maybe try using classic snapping. Just some ideas.
Thanks for the reply. I am pretty sure this is a genuine bug and I would like someone from ESRI to acknowledge it so I can have some hope that it will be rectified in the next round of bug fixes. It's not a super important tool (work-arounds are possible) but I would like to use it and I believe if you provide a tool it must work reliably otherwise it undermines confidence in the whole of Arc.
I have tested this with very simple geometry (see my original post) and I still get erroneous mid-point snaps.
This is where you find mid-point snapping: [ATTACH=CONFIG]28255[/ATTACH]I don't believe it is available in classic snapping.
