Just wondering if anyone knows of a quick method to disable m-aware shapefiles/features? Searching Geonet, ArcDesktop help documents have proved unfruitful.

I'm currently doing copy features and changing it in environments. I could save a ton of time if I disable this in one go.

Anyone else have experience with this?

    Do mean you're already doing this in batch mode and want to go faster?

    No I'm currently running 'copy features' GP tool one at at time which allows me to reexport the shapefile and disable the m-aware value in environments tab.

  • You can right-click the copy features tool, choose Batch, fill in the grid for all your runs, set the environment, and execute all runs back-to-back: desktop.arcgis.com/en/arcmap/10.3/analyze/executing-tools/…

  • Simply change m flag in environment setting s.
