    Last night I took my primary CC3 map that I exported from FT Pro, and began to turn it into a political map. I cannot for the life of me figure out what to do to be able to use the Trace function of the Borders tool to work on the FT generated coast line.

    I unmultipolyed it, exploded it, etc, and nothing would get trace to work. When I exploded it, the coastline turned into a few hundred very short lines. At that point, I gave up and began relying on a high zoom and attach to nearest end point.

    Are there any easier ways to trace an FT generated contour or coastline?
    As I said some days ago, I generally don't use trace in that case but copy the coastline on a new sheet, explode and delete extras. Trace takes a very long time on my computer and I usually need a lot of tries to get what I want.
