I have a shapefile of polygons and want to get a generate format of those polygons. I've tried to first convert the shapefile to coverage and then use the ungenerate tool. But the coverage is lack of one piece of polygon compared to the original shapefile (See the attached screen capture, the green polygons are from coverage and the pink ones from the shapefile are in the back layer). And the ungenerate failed by saying "Cannot open coverage file".
