Does the “Preserve Original Layers” check box work when converting Land Desktop Points?
This question was posted recently on the Discussion Groups. The answer is ONLY IF YOU FORCE IT.
Go to TOOLSPACE->SETTINGS Tab->POINTS->COMMANDS->CREATE POINTS->Right Click and Edit.
Go to Points Creation, and set MATCH ON DESCRIPTION PARAMETER to False
Set DISABLE DESCRIPTION KEYS to True.
This will override the keys, and then the application should respect the check box
Even if you don’t have keys loaded, the application will still see the Use Desc key options, and ignore the other instructions.
