Hi all,

I manually create parcels from points in ArcGIS 10.1: Using Arc Catalog to create a new polygon file (shapefile) => Go to Editor (on mxd Map) to start Editing => Use the Construction Tools to draw the parcels (i.e. using "polygon") => pick the points to form a parcel/polygon.  I got the following error: The feature could not be created. The geometry is invalid in the "Create" box - see the attahed docx file for details. I do not know why I got this error.  Please kindly help and advise.

Thanks in advance,
Scott Chang
