I would like to edit the vertex where two lines intersect, but doing so makes me manually move each vertex of each line. I tried to merge the lines but it did not work.

Is there an easier way to move the point of intersection without having to move vertices from both lines independently?

  • Create a geometric network - this will inherently create junctions at the intersection of line and point. – MDHald Feb 26 '16 at 3:21
  • Create end points. Try snap tool; repeat from results window. Alternativly install arcview 3. Not a joke – FelixIP Feb 26 '16 at 3:43

The easiest way within ArcGIS is to work with a topology.

  • Load your feature class into ArcMap.
  • Open the topology toolbar.
  • Click "Select topology" and select your feature class.
  • Now click on the vertex that's shared by multiple lines to move it.
  • thank you. that really helped. though i have to use "Feature to Line" first before using topolgy. – algito Feb 26 '16 at 8:27
