There is a polygon file which has many polygons. A topoloy rule has already set up, include "not have gaps" and "not overlap". Now, I want to smooth one polygon. I want the shared boundary can be smoothed, not only the select poygon. Could you show me a good method? Thanks.

Mapping Center Answer:

It looks like your problem here is related to the presence of small sliver polygons.  Once you remove them using Eliminate then smoothing your shared boundaries will work properly.
