How can I get the tool to result in a line not an arc? Using the Make Single Element mode, even if the line string is a roughly straight line, the result is always a curve. The radius of the fitted arc is sometimes incredibly large, like 325,067 feet for example, so it looks like a straight line. I would like to just get a linear regression like in Geopak Cogo Best Fit Tool.
The tool cannot result in a straight line. A workaround could be to manually draw a line by snapping to the end points of the result using the Make Single Element mode.

Thanks Holly, that is really good to know. The most important best fit use for me is fitting tangents to survey data. I use the cogo best fit for this all the time and it seems so much more functional than the openroads tool. Is there some equivalent in openroads? I am concerned about losing access to it eventually.
