Trace Tool Back From The Dead

Discussion created by gelwoodvnc on Oct 29, 2015

This being Halloween and all...I thought I'd share my "Zombie Trace Tool" technique...

 

...closed everything...logged out...restarted computer...

 

...opened blank .mxd file...brought in a random polyline file (in this case, a GPS Track collected on a Garmin 60CSx back in 2014)...created a new polyline shapefile (called: trace_tool_test.shp...how's that for cynicism?)...

 

...edited trace_tool_test.shp, traced it to the GPS track...voila! Trace Tool working again!!

 

Loaded street centerline feature classes in to currently open blank .mxd file...stopped editing shapefiles, started editing feature classes...voila! - Trace Tool working with feature classes again!

 

Re-opened previous .mxd file with only feature classes in it...voila! - Trace Tool still working!

 

It's voodoo...
