When I measure a points with trimble GPS can I make a shortcut on a BUTTON in ArcPad to measure POINT(capture point) from a GPS? I don't want to have to always take the little "pen" and click on a CAPTURE POINT. Instead I want to click it with finger on some of buttons on ArcPad. I find this much easier because I have to measure 400 points every day. Is it possible to customize that? Please answer. Thanks.
Assuming you're using ArcPad 10 you can try the following:
- From the QuickCapture tab in the Table of Contents select the features you want to tap to be editable - if the GPS is on these features are automatically captured, otherwise you'll have to capture them by tapping on the map
- You can then increase the button size by opening the Quick Access Menu then Toolbar Settings and then Toolbars
- Lastly restart ArcPad and you should be good to go
