I am maintaining a park polygon feature class. I have added the feature class to ArcMap and then change the color of the polygon. But how to set the polygons to a mixture of symbols e.g. flowers and green and they placed in slant lines?
Labeling is my issue. In 10.6.1 esri fixed the labeling inside a polygon issues. Like remove duplicates. Which is great. but I am still having some issues with offsetting the labels inside the polygon. Please take a look at the two screen shots. SS 1 (client supplied map) is what I am attempting to do, and SS 2 (my map) is what I am coming up…(Show moreShow less)
Another approach: keep your existing big number annotation. In the feature weights area of your labeling tools (don't know what this is called in Pro), there should be an option to apply weights to annotation. If there is, like in ArcMap 10.4, then give big number annotation some weight, e,g. 100. That should keep labels from drawing on top of…
In my regular map view, all the labels are oriented properly. However, when I rotate the map frame in my layout view, all the labels change accordingly but the boat launch symbols are rotated. How do I fix this?
The link below tells me that when I click on administrator in ArcCatalog it will give me the option to select backup. However, my desktop does not give me the backup option to select.

The easiest thing to do is just copy it: file geodatabases are recognized as a folder or directory. Just drag and drop the Name.gdb folder to your external hard drive. If you are doing this over and over, you will be prompted to overwrite the existing folder. Answer yes if you don't need incremental back ups. Answer no and copy it to a…
I am transferring locations from a paper map to ArcMap so that I can calculate the difference between locations. The locations don't have to be exact because the animal locations I am mapping can cover large distances. What I did to transfer the locations is create a road along the coast and then add points along the road. There seems to be a…(Show moreShow less)
I am finding it impossible to align my text properly in a table frame in Pro. As you can see in the image below, the text on certain columns extends below the bottom extent of the table frame. This looks terrible. Ideally, the text should line up precisely at the bottom as it does at the top. However, given that I have periodic blank cells…(Show moreShow less)
Unfortunately, Esri tech support has yet to come up with a solution to the problem. I have since figured out that the column height is determined by the size of the bounding box, but only in terms of the number of records shown. So if the text in some cells wrap to a new line, the affected column containing that text will grow longer instead of…
We get parcels from an outside source. 2 of the fields "Grantor" and "file_as_name" contain an &. In maptips the & converts to an underscore. How do I keep the & an & and prevent it from looking like an underscore?
I am currently making a map set that has 5 lines of text for each label, with each page displaying anywhere from 3-50+ labels. As you can imagine, some of the pages look extremely congested. I have tried the standard label engine, maplex label engine, and moving annotations by hand, but nothing seems to be working. Ideally I'd like key numbering…(Show moreShow less)
Annotation is going to be your best bet. The leader lines available have needed to be improved ever since they were first developed and are not terribly good to work with. You could also make your map page area smaller. go with a larger scale. your trying to show to much data on a page.
Hi, I was wondering if there is a way to make the symbols in the legend to follow domain code. In my attribute table, I have a field called code and a field called Name. Code Name 1 Cat 2 Dog 3 Bird I symbolized the layer based on Name but I would like the legend to show the following 1 Cat…(Show moreShow less)
