Adding a new coordinate outside a geodatabase x,y domain in ArcMap returns the error:
"The Create Feature task could not be completed.
The coordinates or measures are out of bounds."
A coordinate of the added feature is beyond the extents of the feature class x,y domain. Geodatabase feature coordinates must fall within the feature class x,y domain extent. The x,y domain is set when the dataset or stand-alone feature class is created. It cannot be updated after creation.
All feature classes in a feature dataset possess the X/Y domain of the feature dataset. If your original feature class is in a feature dataset, the new feature class cannot reside in the original feature dataset. It must be created as a stand-alone feature class or a feature class in a feature dataset with extents that go far enough to encompass the new coordinates.
