What you say will work, but I don't use update drawing from database, unless absolutely necessary. It will move ALL the ptnm, desc and most the time consuming – elevations to their original positions. Ok, if you want to redo a couple days work of cleaning up elevations and descriptions. Can future releases have a toggle to let the user choose how Automap works? In the meantime I guess I’ll export the points, delete them and then import them back in. It will work, but it will be time consuming and the point history will be lost. Can you think of any other work arounds?
