Arc Features from the GET command are not saved

Last Published: April 25, 2020

Solution or Workaround


Some or all of the arc features from the GET command are not save to the coverage.


This is most like a precision issue. The arc features being retrieved are most likely too small (near the 6-7 digit precision range).


Check the coverage coordinates and see if any leading digits are going unused. If there are, TRANSFORM the coverage so it will be at the same level of precision with all the coverages used with the GET command.

The fuzzy tolerance of the coverage could also be affecting the selected arc features that are not being saved. If the fuzzy tolerance of the receiving coverage is too low, then the arc features will be dropped. Set the fuzzy tolerance to be lower than the smallest arc being retrieved.
