Frequently asked question

Why does ARCEDIT MERGE return "Merged 2 polygon(s) into 0"?

Last Published: April 25, 2020


The '0' in the message indicates that no new polygon was created. A new polygon will not be created if the same polygon is selected twice, or if selected polygons are not connected. Merging a polygon with itself does not require a new polygon to be created.
