I am using ArcGIS Desktop 10.6.1.

I am trying to fix a dataset that has several holes throughout it. I built a topology to identify any area that does not have gaps or overlaps. However, when I run the error check, the identified gaps come in as polylines and it will not give me the option to fill them.

Has anyone encountered this and have a workaround?

There doesn't seem to be anywhere to specify what feature type the error should represent itself as.

I can click "create a feature," but I'd rather merge that in with the surrounding polygon than create a separate feature for it.

    Do you have a picture of what the issue is? It is sometimes easier to understand the problem by looking at it. – Keagan Allan Nov 13 '19 at 22:15
  • This is an expected behaviour, creating a feature, since it cannot be "guessed" which polygon that this new feature will be merged. You can fix errors in bulk and then use Eliminate or Eliminate Polygon Parts tools depending on your problem. – fatih_dur Nov 14 '19 at 7:20
  • @fatih_dur Those tools did the trick. That was what I was looking to do, but did not know those tools were available. Thanks! – Smithw1 Nov 19 '19 at 18:10
  • I am glad this solved your problem. I will move my comment as answer. – fatih_dur Nov 20 '19 at 0:07
