With a geometric network that contains a weight that corresponds to the shape length field for a complex edge, when snapping a detached junction at the end point of one edge to a detached junction at the end point or along another edge, the following error may be raised:
Error: The feature(s) cannot be moved.
The error message may also include:
Error: The operation was attempted on an empty geometry.
Snapping a detached junction, that is connected to a complex edge feature with a weight assigned to its shape length field, to a detached junction connected to another edge feature, raises the above error and aborts the operation.
If the purpose of snapping the detached junction was to eventually subsume it with a standard junction, subsume the detached junction with a standard, user-defined junction prior to snapping it to the other detached junction.
If the purpose of snapping the detached junction was to establish connectivity, the following steps can be used to work around this error:
