Most will create an Area Feature Layer. The Entire Field Boundary needs to be on this Layer. For areas that are internal polygons, use the split polygon tool button to get those areas separated from the main field map. Those non farmed areas need to be defined as Exclusion Areas. Here are the steps to follow:

1. Remove all layers except the Boundary Layer.
2. Select the Layers Tab beneath the Mapping screen and make sure from the View box, field boundaries is highlighted.
3. From the left, highlight the field name, where I am assuming was edited and polygon areas removed. Right click on the Field name and select Edit Boundaries. Select the Include polygon tool button and trace around those areas to add back into the field boundary. Once all have been added back, click Save and Close.
4. Right click on the corrected map and select Copy.
5. Back to the Red Barn tab, right click on the Field name (green patchwork icon) and select Add Layer - Create Area Feature.
6. This will automatically create the layer, display as top layer and place you into Map-Editing. From the Mapping screen, right click and select Paste Addition. When the Define box displays, select Click Save and Close.
7. I am assuming you have some way of determining what polygon areas need to be excluded. Display this layer and then the newly created Feature Area layer above that. Use the Transparency Slide bar to be able to view beneath Layer data. Click the Edit Layer button, use the Split polygon tool button and trace area, right click finish and when the define box displays, click the drop down button and select Exclusion - Non Productive. Click OK. Repeat this process until all exclusion zones have been created and defines. Click Save and Close.

When you complete the Write Job Data, make sure to go to the Resource list and verify desired C/F/F are checked on the Farm/Field Tab. When selecting the Trimble options, these Feature layers will export automatically allowing you to open.

Hope this helps!
