User is digitising new (line, poly) features and accidentally adds additional vertices within very small distance of previous vertex, resulting in redundant vertices. I want to prevent this from happening within the current editing environment (ArcGIS 10.x). Back in workstation this could be accomplished using WEED tolerance parameter in the ARCEDIT editing environment. It seems there is no equivalent in ArcGIS.
I've been offered a couple of answers to this question, both of which have been inadequate thus far:
Answer - Change the XY resolution or XY tolerance of the feature class.
I absolutely do not want to do either of these as it creates geometry problems in the data. I don't want to change anything about the storage of the data itself, this would be like changing the coverage precision.
Answer - Use the 'classic' snapping environment and snap to sketch vertices and set the tolerance to a minimum distance value.
While this might eliminate some of these occurences, it does not actually prevent the user from creating redundant vertices. It also requires additional validation work afterwards to identify and fix possible errors (check geometry, topology etc.). I am trying to minimise errors at the editing stage while also reducing the amount of work to validate the data.
So the question boils down to "I used to be able to do this? Why can't I now?". The answer could well be "There is no equivalent, deal with it". I'm hoping this isn't the case though.
