Problem: Creating parcel remainders returns a Construction method error


When creating a parcel remainder by right-clicking the overlaying parcel feature and selecting Parcel Remainder, a "Construction method error" is returned.


This error occurs because the underlying parcel feature is composed of line strings instead of two-point line segments.

Solution or Workaround

Split the Line Strings. Follow these instructions:

  1. Open the Parcel Details window.
  2. Click the Lines tab.
  3. Right-click the Line String, and select Split Line String.
  4. Rejoin the parcel to the fabric.
