Representation to Shapefile
Is it possible to export the result of our representation edits into a shapefile? I know I can save a layer file, but I need to export it into a CAD software and I'd like to export it in .shp... I can't apply my edit to the geometry. I have to put them in an override field...
Mapping Center Answer:
Sorry--there's no way to do that. The idea with edting representations is that you're not actually editing the data's geometery which is presumed to have geographic integrity (while the representation would be gaining cartographic integrity). Those representation edits are only stored in the geodatabase and depend on database functionality that does not exist in the Shapefile data model or in most CAD data models (at least not in a similar/compatible form).
