||Re: Save drawing as a shape file?
||Jul 21, 2005
||If you just use the drawing tool bar you get graphics attached to the default annotation layer of the map. Right click on the dataframe and select properties. There is tab called annotation groups. This is where your polygons are inside of the map. If you want a shapefile. Create a new one in ArcCatalog and add it to ArcMap. From here you have two choices:
1. Start an edit session and use the edit sketch tools to draw your polygons etc ..
2. Start an edit session, select all of the graphics, select Copy from the edit menu, then paste from the edit menu.
Stop editing and save edits. You now have a new shapefile.
