my problem addresses the union tool. I edited polygons in eight different layers because the area I investigate is quite big. Now I want to have all this edited polygons of these eight layers in one layer. The first problem is that when I use the union tool I have to choose a template which can only be one of the already existing. So I do not get a new one, but yes, this is one thing I could ignore. The more important thing is that when I use the tool the polygons do not exist for themselves anymore. They are ONE and I can not even pick a single one out of it. They do not occure in the attribut table. But I need every single of my created polygons listed with different FIDs because I want to do further calculations. I tried it with Feature to Polygon and this tool solves the problem BUT even worse is now that the main part of my already done work disappears. Most of the polygons are directly neighboured so I had to cut the polygons. And now after the union they are registered as one again so I would have to cut all these polygons again.
Is there someone who can help me handling this problem?
To sum it up again: I need to "union" the polygons of eight layers into one without resulting into neighbouring polygons melting together. They need to stay exactly as I edited them, everyone of them with a single FID.
