Dissolve by Attribute - should optionally Explode

Nov 30, 2011 at 4:54 AM
When dissolving polygons (Toolbox > Dissolve by Attribute), each attribute
value is rendered into a single, multipart polygon. There should be a
checkbox on the dialog box that allow each contiguous area of a single
attribute value to be rendered into a unique polygon. Essentially, run the
Explode Shapes command automatically after completing the Dissolve
function.
