Introduction

  • Objective of this section
    • To analyze the different methods of features data editing and deleting features from the Map
  • Topics in this section
    • Direct editing on the data grid: changing values in the cells ("Standard" and "Professional" editions only)
    • Finding and replacing: search term, Layer, field and options ("Standard" and "Professional" editions only)
    • Multiple edition: Layer, scope, field and new value ("Standard" and "Professional" editions only)


How can I edit a value in a Table? ("Standard" and "Professional" editions only)

You can edit a value in the Table of the selected Layer in Spatial Manager Desktop™ by double-clicking on the correspondent cell in the Data grid. Some considerations:

  • You must enter a valid value according to the type of Field you are editing
  • If the values are "greyed" in the Data grid this means the Layer is an "External layer" and its external source is a read-only source, so you cannot edit the values in the Table


Editing values in the 'Data grid'


Notes:

  • You can also edit any data value in the "Properties" panel of the application
  • The fields whose value starts with "http" are automatically converted into active links


Can I change the value of a Field in a Table for more than one Feature simultaneously? ("Standard" and "Professional" editions only)

Yes, you can change the value of a Field in a Table for various Features simultaneously in Spatial Manager Desktop™, using the "Multiple edition" function in the "Start" ribbon. To do it, you must:

  • Select the Layer and the Field to apply the edition
  • Select if you want to apply the edition to all the Layer or only to the selected Features (if any)
  • Type the new value for the selected Field

The above considerations about the type of Field and the type of source should also be noted here

Can I find (and replace) a value in a Table? ("Standard" and "Professional" editions only)

  • Select the Layer to perform this operation
  • Select the Field to perform this operation, or "All" if you want to perform it over all the Fields in the selected Layer
