Feature file merge and copy options

In LP360 and True View Evo, the user has the ability to merge multiple feature (SHP) files or copy a single file to a new feature layer. This is useful for combining files to have a single file for all features or simply creating quick back up of the feature file. The process for performing these operations is reviewed below:

Merge Feature Files

The user has the ability to merge multiple features into a single new file or append to an existing file by right selecting features in the table of contents, right clicking and choosing the “Merge Feature Layers” option. In order to properly use this function, these features must be the same type and Schema. If the Schema is different for one or more of the feature files, the use can edit check and edit these to match in Schema Editor. If the shapefile type is different between files, the user can use the Create Features From Existing Features function to create SHP types that match.
