I want to edit points only of points in a string of line

I want to edit points only of points in a string of line, don't want to edit the lines, want to put the points in a separate layer for easier editing

I then want to load another dem and transform/translate these points to the former data

    Hello,

    To create a point at each vertex of a line feature:
    1. Select the line feature
    2. Right-click and choose Advanced Feature Creation Options | Create New Points from Selected Area and Line Features (the new points will be created in a new layer called User Created Features or will be added to it, if there is already a layer with that name).
    3. The new points are automatically selected after being created.
    4. Right-click and choose EDIT - Edit selected features
    5. Change the Feature Layer to the name of the layer you want to use, or create a new one.  Click OK.

    I am not sure what you mean by this.  Do you want to load a DEM and add the elevations to the points that you just created, or something else?

    Cheers,

  • Hi Bob
    maybe GM doesn't do it
    if have three points or more in common can we do a least squares adjustment to "fit' the translated data  to the
    data on the right......hope this makes sense
