  • Type of Join: Keep all vs. Keep only left side with match
  • Relationship: One-to-One vs. One-to-Many and Modify via the Block Editor

Export Query Searches (SDF – SHP – Bulk Copy)

  • Unlike AutoCAD layers, feature classes do not contain and styling information, and in most cases, do not support more than one type of object such as lines, points, or polygons.
  • Export a SHP to an SDF
  • Bulk copy features from an SDF to an SHP file
