Lock vertex position

Discussion created by rglos on Oct 18, 2013
Is there a way to lock a vertex so that it will not move or be deleted when later doing geoprocessing functions like generalize or simplify line? I need some points along a line to stay exactly where they are.

I could split the line at the vertices I want to stay in place, but from time to time I run a process that joins linear segments, which combines the small segments back into a longer line. It would be great if I could just freeze those vertices in place.
