Access to the Polygon Feature Class from Lines command is different in ArcCatalog 10 than in ArcCatalog 9.3. In ArcCatalog 9.3, the command is accessed by right-clicking a feature dataset then pointing to New, which gives the user this option. In ArcCatalog 10, the user must first add this tool to the toolbar, then select a feature dataset and click the command.A more popular tool, Feature to Polygon, is only available with an ArcInfo license, but Polygon Feature Class from Lines is available with both ArcInfo and ArcEditor licenses, which makes it a viable workaround for ArcEditor users.
