Snapping to features in feature service layers

If you have feature services in your map, you can snap to their features while editing, measuring, georeferencing, and using other tools that work with the Snapping toolbar.

For example, you are making updates to a city's parks and recreation geodatabase. Roads and utility infrastructure data are shared with you as web-based feature services. When you are creating a new open space area in your parks geodatabase, you can snap to the roads and other features from the feature services.


If you do not need to snap to feature service layers, keep this setting disabled to maintain snapping performance.

  1. Ensure snapping is enabled. On the Snapping toolbar, click the Snapping menu and make sure Use Snapping is checked.
  2. Click the Snapping menu on the Snapping toolbar and click Options.
  3. Check Snap to feature service layers.
  4. Click OK.
