Hello GeoNet community,
I am asking about Cartographic Representation - Calculate End Caps, a cartography tool in ArcToolbox, for calculating the representation for cased line representations. Specifically, I am mapping streets in Seattle, WA.
I am using the GIS data from Seattle Department of Transportation. I have extracted by clip a subset of this feature class with a hand drawn polygon, and symbolized the streets with cartographic representations. I symbolize the end caps with caps round and joins round.
When I run Calculate Line Caps in ArcToolbox, I receive an 99999 error (a generic error), and the tool fails. This is ArcGIS 10.2.2.
Previously I used this tool to calculate line caps in the last map I produced (ArcGIS 10.1). It worked when the with default caps for the casing set to round. I cannot recall how I set the joins.
I have set both the casing and the line symbols to cap round, joins round. I wonder if I need to set a different default value for both the casing and joins, or if there is an ArcGIS bug.
Anyone having experience with this tool, please contribute to the discussion. I will continue to solve the problem and keep those interested informed.
