Replacing cartographic line feature geometry (Aviation)
The Replace Geometry tool allows you to replace the geometry of a cartographic line feature with new geometry using elements you create with the Draw toolbar. One example where you can use this tool is cartographically generating a curved procedure leg to represent the Missed Approach. You can also use the Replace Geometry tool to curve procedure leg segments that form "pretzel" shapes near the runways. The Replace Geometry tool does not create a new cartographic feature; it only replaces the geometry of existing line features.
