How could I have overlooked this!!! Thanks :)

comment How to clean up a polygon by removing vertices and lines within?
I found multiple ways to solve the problem: the tool 'eliminate polygon parts' in ArcInfo and 'clean donut holes' in ET Geowizards.

comment How to clean up a polygon by removing vertices and lines within?
Yes, although I am not sure how to further clarify. I merged a bunch of polygons which apparently were not properly aligned. As a result, I have large polygons which do not only have an outline, but also vertices on the inside that define tiny holes in the polygon (see image). I want to get rid of these vertices that define gaps in the polygons that I created.

I know this tool - Integrate would be another option. But what if I just want to delete the holes in the polygon rather than adapting the merged files?

comment How to clean up a polygon by removing vertices and lines within?
You are right, when I zoom in very far, I can see that lines are made up of very narrow triangles. I think they originate from the original polygons that were merged - the edges must have not lined up nicely... Still, I am not deleting separate features, but tiny holes in a larger polygon.

comment Is it possible to add values+symbols to an imported symbology in ArcMap?
Yes, this is what I thought should happen, but the problem is it does not. I am sorry if my question was not clear. If it works this way for you, I must have missed a step somehow or something else is wrong. I'll give it another go tomorrow and will let you know if it worked - I have to work on a different project now. Thanks for all your input!

I think there might be some miscommunication here: the new values already exist in the shapefile's attribute table, but not in the imported symbology.

Seems handy, but I do not want to extract a certain set of features, but a set of lines and points that are part of the feature that should not be there.

I'm not sure if I understand what you mean. Do you think I should add the values in the layerfile (where the symbology should come from) or in the shapefile? Because the values without a symbol are already present in the shapefile. I added the values in the layerfile (although there are no shapes with these values), but when importing it, the new symbols do not show.

In the layerfile with the original legend it is, but in the new file certain labels do not contain polygons anymore. Of course I could manually adjust these labels to the three I need, that would solve the problem for now.

Thanks, but this is exactly what I was doing. When I click 'add values', the box does not show additional values. After clicking 'complete list', I get the three additional values, but when adding them, again, the imported symbology is gone.
