How To: Prevent polygon fills from leaking into the background-ArcGIS 8.x
At certain view scales, the entire view outside the polygon changes colors to match the colors within some of the polygons. This is caused by a polygon shapefile being "dirty".
The following steps will show how to "clean" the polygon shapefile.
- Run the Clean Shapefile utility located in the ArcObjects Developer Kit.
If you don't have the Developer Kit loaded, you can download this utility from ESRI's support site. See Related Information below.
- Select a shapefile for export.
- Type the name for the output shapefile.
