How do I break linked polygons created from New Feature from Geometry?

Hello, I'm using AutoCAD Map 3D. I had some geometry that I needed to convert into a shape file, so I selected on the shp layer "New Feature from Geometry".  Everything converted to join the shape layer, but now it is all connected.  I want to move/edit individual polygons but when I go to select one it selects all of them.

 

I've noticed I can "create new feature" one at a time, but I'd really like to find how to unlink them after I've converted them in bulk.

New feature from geometery is designed to work one feature at a time. That allows you to add/edit the feature atrributes. To "bulk convert" you need to use the map export command.
