The geometry for a turn cannot start or end at a junction

Last Published: April 25, 2020

Error Message

**Internal Publish Only! This article may contain information that is not intended for external circulation.**While trying to create a new turn feature, the following error message is displayed:"The geometry for a turn cannot start or end at a junction."


The turn editor is mistakenly using the spatial reference's tolerance setting, which is in map units, to determine the closeness of a edit sketch to a junction.

For example, if the tolerance is 0.2 feet, then anything between 0%-20% or 80%-100% along the edge is considered too close to the junction.

Solution or Workaround

For the example tolerance of 0.2 feet, click between 20%-80% along the edge.
