On the Edit tab, click the Snapping drop-down arrow to change settings for snapping tolerances, z-snapping in 2D maps, snapping to an unfinished sketch, and the appearance of snap tips.
Change snapping settings
- On the ribbon, click the Edit tab. In the Snapping group, click the Snapping drop-down arrow and click Snapping Settings .
- In Editor Settings, click the Snapping tab and check or uncheck the optional settings.
Specify the 2D planar distance between the pointer and a feature at which the enabled snap agents become active.
Click Set snapping tolerance on the drop-down menu to specify this tolerance by sketching with the pointer.
Check this setting to snap the pointer to the nearest z-value stored with a 3D surface or z-aware feature. Uncheck this setting before creating features to snap to other features but not to their z-values.
This setting is locked on for 3D global, local, and stereo scenes.
Specify the vertical snap distance between the pointer and the nearest z-value stored with a 3D surface or z-aware feature.
This setting is available for 2D maps and 3D stereo views only.
Check this setting to show snap tips near the pointer when a snap agent is active.
Snap tip color
Specify the snap tip text color.
Snap to sketch
Check this setting to snap to unfinished sketches as you create or modify features.
- Click OK.
Sketch the XY tolerance
Sketching the XY tolerance uses the current pixel or map unit setting and dynamically reports the value as you move the pointer.
- On the ribbon, click the Edit tab. In the Snapping group, click the Snapping drop-down arrow and click Set snapping tolerance .
- Click the map to create a reference point.
- Move the pointer until the screen tip displays the intended tolerance value.
