How to copy annotation from one subclass to another.
One option is to use the DUPLICATE command in ARCEDIT. This copies any selected pieces of annotation into a new or existing annotation subclass.
ARCEDIT: EDIT FEATURE ANNO.SOILS
ARCEDIT: SELECT MANY
ARCEDIT: DUPLICATE DIRT
/*This creates an subclass called 'dirt' if it does not.
/*exist, or allows you to append to a subclass called
/*'dirt' if it already exists.
Another option is to use the ARC command COPYFEATURES.
ARC: COPYFEATURES COV1 ANNO.SOILS COV1 ANNO.DIRT
The COPYFEATURES command can also be used to copy annotation into a subclass
from annotation not in a subclass, or copy annotation not in a subclass to annotation in a subclass.
ARC: COPYFEATURES COV1 ANNO COV1 ANNO.SOILS
ARC: COPYFEATURES COV1 ANNO.SOILS COV1 ANNO
The PUT and GET commands in ARCEDIT and the COPYFEATURES command at the ARC prompt can be used to move annotation from one coverage to another.
