Outline for several polygon features
I would like to create an outline for several polygon features, while also keeping the theme for each individual polygon. Basically: I have a zoning map and I want to see each of the the different zones and their color scheme, but I want the entire village boundary to be represented by another outline. Is there a way to do with without creating another polygon for the whole area? I am using ArcView 9.2. Please see the attached file - I have highlighted the area I want to use as a boundary with "ink".
Thanks for the help.
Mapping Center Answer:
There's no way to do this without creating new data. You could either use the dissolve tool (don't specify a field), or create a new feature class and use the Editor's trace tool to create a polygon that follows the outside edges of your selected polygons.
