Modified on 2018/03/19 23:01 by Adam — Categorized as: Uncategorized

An exciting tool in Surety or Surety Pro is the ability to merge multiple drawn fields, pivots or smart selected fields! 



Also remember that if you DO Not want the FSA fields borders to appear in any of the maps and/or reports that you generate that you can turn the FSA fields layer off in the right hand panel under the Layers button.

Merge FSA fields that are next to (& touching) one another.

 

1.To access the Merge Fields tool, click on Drawing in the left hand panel and a variety of drawing tools will be revealed.

2. Then click on the radio button next to merge fields.

When you click on the radio button for the Merge Fields tool, a Merge Selected link will also appear in the lower right hand panel (you may potentially need to scroll down).

3. With the Merge Fields tool selected, click on two fields (or more) that are next to one another. 

*Note: In order to merge two fields, there needs to be at least one intersecting or touching border between the selected fields.

*Note: In order to merge two fields, there needs to be at least one intersecting or touching border between the two selected fields.
